Strange Twin Into AUS

Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:31 pm

I cant find anything out of the ordinary on flight aware but at about noon a strange large twin passed over my house on approach to AUS. It had a very distinctive noise to it - very low pitch that I haven't heard before. It sounded like some 787 videos I found online. My first thought was that it was united's new 787 but the bottom was pained dark blue near the tail. I cant find any pictures of 787s painted like this. Anyone notice anything strange at AUS today?

You sure it wasn't Delta's 752?

Ah yes

You saw the Ultra Exotic Delta 757-200 Flight 1858 that arrived at 12:09

Airbus 300/310? are they still in the skies?

I am confident huxrules would be able to tell a 757 from another plane, if he is hanging around this site

Tunisair also flies A300-600s, my best short/medium haul flights of recent years.
