Not really - its in a protected application of the Eurocontrol System.

All i can tell you is the callsign is AIB301 and it's filed from LFBO at 0730UTC and ETA of EGLF at 0901UTC (if we are being exact about it!)

I dont think its adviseable to post the ATC routing, but it will follow a standard arrival to FAB from SAM.

Women and children first, no pushing please...
Right, I'm off to oil my chain!

Thanks.

A380 landed @ Farnborough

The A380 landed at Farnborough at about 10:00am. Unfortunately it landed from the Fleet end of the runway which mean't that those of us standing outside the Swan pub got to see it from a distance once it reached the end of the runway!

On the upside: At least its sunny so I can work in the garden for the rest of the day and hopefully catch the validation display.

Excellent validation display from the A380. The aircraft noise was much lower than I expected in the climb, and I was not expecting it to be noisy.

Looking forward to what should be a great show.

So that's why I couldn't use ATC 1 to get to the Swearingen SJ30.

Did he break his speed record ?? Or was his 'No delay please. Record attempt.' on the Flight Plan just a ruse to fool those TC boys ??

How was the Dhruv and the HAL IJT-36. How many Dhruv participated and are they from the Sarang Display Team? Anyone has any information about it and especially the Photographs of the IJT and Dhruv. If you have them please post it here.
