Yeah, no problem. They can get from London to St. Johns, Canada, which is 2316 miles in a straight line. Your flight is 1473 miles in a straight line,

Sq327 9v-svj

I apologise if I am posting in the wrong place but I wanted to know if the Singapore plane with the registration(?) 9V-SVJ that left MAN about 10.17 today (1st Nov 2007) was SQ327 to Singapore. I appreciate that I am probably asking a completely daft question but there you go. How else will I learn anything? Please be kind if you reply!

Don't Laugh

It was supposed to push back at 10.00(which it did) and the airline told me it would take off at 10.26 but then at 10.20, after I'd seen it go, they said it would take off very soon. I decided that the person was confused and that I had just watched my brother's plane as he started his one-way trip to a new life in enZed...but I just wanted another person to say it was and there wasn't another sneaky Singapore Airlines plane just waiting around the corner until I'd run off sobbing towards the M56(OK, that last bit was just for dramatic effect)

Thank you!

ps the only other plane I've watched leave from here was the Antonov 225 last year...almost to the day...OK a month back...and even I could tell which one that was!

Sq237/9v-svj

Yes, 9V-SVJ was the aeroplane (Boeing 777) serving the Manchester to Changi, Singapore flight but you may have made a typo as the flight number was SQ327.

The good news is that, as you may have heard by now, it arrived safely a short while ago.

Nosey, some people are born lucky. I took my little boy to his first cricket match, very first ball the guy tonks it for 6 and it drops at our feet.

Similarly, you should know that not all random visits to the mound result in seeing an An-225 Or did you have a plan?

Now that was a surprising sight, as it floated over my garden that day, apparently motionless.

I knew it was flying out that day as my partner was on it - going to Nigeria to build a stage...never have I been so jealous of anyone...

Anyone guess the type of plane?

Bit of a strange question this.......I went on a school trip to Jersey. At the time I was not interested in flying, so didn't take any notice of the type of plane I was on. Having now got my PPL and being very interested in flying, I'm curious as to what type of plane it might have been, as it was my very first flight.

So, it was from Gatwick to Jersey, 1972 - obviously I don't expect a definitive answer, but just some suggestions as to likely types for that route at that time.

Do you remember if it was a chartered flight (just the school, perhaps) or a normal flight? Might help cut down the options.

I don't think there would have been enough of us for a charter, so most likely a schedule.

I do remember that Jersey was fogged in and we had to divert to Southampton - after a couple of hours on the ground we set off again - so 2 flights for the price of one!! To this day that's the only time I've been diverted.
