Strange Visitor At EDI

Thu Sep 27, 2012 3:38 pm

I pass EDI most days and noticed - along with a few extra biz jets - a Euro Atlantic 772, CS-TFM. Does anyone know what it was doing here? MoD charter perhaps? First thing that's caught my eye since the National DC-8 earlier this year.

Quoting bergkampsticket (Thread starter):
Euro Atlantic 772, CS-TFM

Hasn't it been doing some sub-charters for Monarch recently? Perhaps someone else can confirm...?

Thanks for your response, Vasu. I'm still none the wiser but have found out it arrived into EDI on Wednsday and I saw it parked (by the usual cargo fleet) on Friday so it's sat there quite a while. Unfortunately I'm not sure if it's still there now.

Edit: seems it was an MoD charter from the comment at the bottom of the pic here http://www.airplane-pictures.net/pho...atlantic-airways-boeing-777-200er/

Nice to see an unfamiliar widebody (or any widebody bar our regular Star Air 767) at EDI.
