AN-124 Heading To LHR

Sun Mar 21, 2004 9:38 pm

Hi anyone who lives within 10mins of LHR get to Myrtle Ave soon because i just saw a AN-124 heading into LAM and i asume on LHR. I'm not definate but thats its most likely port of call. I'm sorry in advance if it doesn't turn up but just to be safe i would go if i was you! Good Luck and fingers crossed!

Thanks LHRman  Big thumbs up

I knew it was, fantastic I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it I ran in and screamed at my dad, he thought was an IL-96, tut tut tut!

Hope others saw it, and was it going to into LHR Simon?

I doubt it somehow, although I might be wrong.

Might be coming from STN, or could be going into Birmingham, who knows!
Great sighting though.

Do you know what heading it was at? When it passed my house heading westerly it couldn't have been higher that 9,000 and heading into the LAM holding pattern. I live in the Essex area not too far from Southend and we don't get many aircraft flying towards STN over this way only when they depart towards Dover. Thanks again...

I live on Canvey Island, in Essex - it was heading West towards London.

It was actually probably going towards Shannon, and then over to the USA.

Yeah true! Do you visit LHR very often? Plus do you watch them heading into London Holding points, sometimes on a clear day you see around 300 planes heading into LHR its great!

Thanks LHRman, I hope we can talk more on LHR matters!  Big thumbs up

There was a VDA AN124 due in to Brize today, possibly one and the same

Cheers

Ah, an AN-124 at Brize Norton? Because I saw one flying low around Fairford and thought it may be there... my bad.
