What Was This Landing? STN

Sat Jun 28, 2014 8:50 pm

Hi guys,

I was out playing cricket today under the STN flight path, and I couldn't figure out what one of the arrivals was. I didn't yet a great look at it but it looked like sort of Gulf Stream, Tupolev or even Yak shaped. I initially thought for sure it was a Gulf Stream as STN has many private arrivals but it appears too big to be one, but I am not sure on that one. It passed over me at 14:04 on 28/6/14 so would have landed say 14:05/14:06 I would imagine. If any has any info that would be really interesting.

Thanks

Matt

Hi Matt,

The very handy playback function on the web-version of www.flightradar24.com would suggest that you saw a Gulfstream V at the end of a very long flight from OAK. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the aircraft reg wasn't recorded.

On a side note, is there any way of finding out the registrations of biz-jets or other craft not showing ID on Flightradar24?
Many thanks...Des
