Hello

Really nice that picture of those teams together!!! 8O COOL!!

It's idd very remarkable those planes with contrails behind the wings , although you can spot it from time to time , I saw it several times too , O I wished I had a cam than :D

I flew CRL-DUB-CRL on Wednesday , and unfortunately I didn't see a lot of contrailers. :( I did saw one heavy , but he was too far away and I couldn't see him with my binoculars. I did saw wat seemed to be a Lufthansa CRJ about 1 or 2 km below us. And something further in England...a green colored propeller plane on approach for a local airport. (Dash 8/Fokker 50/ATR ???).Anyone who has an Idea , I can't find any.

Best regards: Yannick ;)

Maybe that was an Aer Lingus Commuter F50.

Don't think so. Aer Lingus doesn't operate the F50 anymore :wink:

Hi,

The Red Arrows heart formation can be seen on this video, at 1.50 min.
For those who wonder how it's performed...

Some overhead traffic on 04/03/2006

No ID

Image


Unmistakebly a Emirates 777 going east

Image


Monarch airbus going west

Image



DC-10 heading east... no ID

Image


No ID, though the red belly should make it easier to find... I've checked airliners, but just going on the red belly makes it hard. Probably Boeing 737-800 with winglets.

Image

Clouds are dissapearing... going out to get more... :lol:

Goodafternoon,
I guess the red 737-800 Winglets looks like a Flyglobespan, UK.

Hi Omag,

My thoughts...
The first one, the A330, I think it's also an Emirates-one. Right in front of the tail you can see some coloured stripes (IMO)...

The last one; the 738W; is IMO an Air Berlin. There is white on the tail. I did a quick research on a.net, and it seems Flyglobespans have a full red tail; Air Berlin has white on it. Same situation with the colour of the winglets.

Regards,
Wim

For me, the 738WL is an Air Berlin. Take a look closer on the engine(s) and compare.

And I don't think it's a DC-10 on the 4th picture but an MD-11 (notice the winglets). My bet goes for Lufthansa Cargo heading to FRA or Martinair Cargo (old c/s).

hellow,

OMAG;
I saw those planes to, and I think the DC-10 was a World
but I saw later an MD-11 heading NW about 17.20 LT.
do you see him to?

Hi

too bad of the thick cumulus clouds above here :(

Could only spot for about 5-15min undisturbed.
Anyway:

Only seen this:

2x Air France A320-/319
1x British airways 319


Further. VERY nice to see one FINALLY on the 'flugzeugradar' :D

Outbound from FRA:

overflying 12:29LT DE 6428 Puerto Plata (Thomas Cook B767-300ER)
I saw the dot standing right in the middle of the 'Kempen' exactly where I am , so it MUST have been him :D

link to radar (abflug/depature (FRA)): http://www.flugzeugposter.de/cgi-fp/sho ... id=5177611

if it doesn't works: www.flugzeugposter.de

Unless you live in Holland you can use the anflug radar. Unfortunately never seen an FRA inbound plane over Belgium , only outbounds.

Best regards: Yannick ;)
