A346 At MAN This Evening?

Fri Jun 29, 2012 7:30 pm

Evenin' All,

I was sat having my tea an hour or so ago and noticed what looked like an A345/6 on finals into MAN. It was silhouetted against the sunset (yes, we had a sunset in Manchester tonight!) so couldn't make out any detail.

Could anyone tell me what it was please?

Thanks,

ADB1

It could have been G-VSHY, ex VS. it's been in MNL for its EOL check and its due in MAN for painting for return to its lessor.

You'll probably see a few of them in MAN over the next few months....
So long 701, it was nice knowing you.

G-VSHY landed at MAN at 1945, no other A340s into MAN this evening, so that must have been the one. As noted above, inbound from MNL as VIR814P for Air Livery.
