[Update] Avgeek only: Antonov An-225 to the UK on 29 August, heading towards Athens on 30 August


On 29 August, an Antonov AN225 “Mriya” landed at Brize Norton at 20:37 (UTC +1) after overflying Rotterdam, Colchester London and Cirencester. Brize Norton is a military base of the Royal Air Force. 

On 30 August at 06:00 (UTC +1), the aircraft is scheduled for a flight towards Athens, most likely the airline will overfly Belgium (thanks Martyn Benson for the tip), as the airline isn’t really flying according to schedule Aviation24.be opened a dedicated forum topic where you can follow the flight schedule.
