Where was this picture taken?

Could be an AWACS or Sentry during military exercise, doing large patterns high in the sky.

My guess is also for a Britannia/Thomasonfly plane. Defenitely not a 757, but a 767 series! My guess is the short one, although not sure.

Skystef,

Is the MH cruising E or W bound on your picture? I guess it is E bound?

Anyway, normal routing is more North, but can vary due to weather (winds).

Pawel,

Malaysia mostly passes over the Netherlands, routing RENDI REFSO (westbound), thus passing overhead Rotterdam. A lot of Singapore airline planes have the same routing. It is also used by QF, BA, EK, QR .

I've never seen any MH plane contrailing over Belgium.

Brubiac,

As Frederic already mentioned, the 340 most likely belongs to Gulf Air. A4O-LB visited EGLL today and passed overhead Belgium around noon as GF002.

The 747 of ELAL was most likely operating flight LY315 LLBG-EGLL. ID: 4X-ELA

Guys, girls, SIN-EWR SQ 22 is most likely flown over the pacific. EWR-SIN SQ21 is most likely flown over the atlantic. I've never seen reports SQ22 flying overhead Europe.

Sabena_690,

EK201 DXB-JFK was most likely flying inbound COA. KOK is used for eastbound traffic.
