No photograph but definitely the best flyover of 2006 , so far

VT-AXD Boeing 737-800(W) overhead BRU at 16.47 c/s AI160 out of Birmingham on delivery.

Keep those eyes scanning the skies - you never know what you might see!

I think that the B747 could be:
- an Atlas Air
- or it could be probably a Global Supply Systems (operated by BA)

That are my suggestions :D

Hi,

besides the usual stuff, I've noted on March 23 2006 this bird: west bound 1731 LT.

What do the experts think?
