Re: Corsair 747 fly by over Kemble.

Thanks for the post. I wasn’t aware that Corsair was one of the few airlines that operated all 747 models except the -8. Interesting. Yes, it's a little airline but in 27 years they managed to operate 23 different 747s with five different versions. https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Corsair Saw ...

Can't give you the exact one, but it's one of those: F-GSEA, F-GSEX, F-GSKY, F-GSUN or F-HJAK. All -300s and former SQ.
