I saw a strange looking A320 this morning coming out of LHR, and it was a Joon example flying an AF flight from/to CDG. As a subsidiary it must be easy for them to substitute it as and when. Also just seen an Argentinian A330 going in, rather nifty paint job.

Joon was AF's short-lived foray into the LCC arena, only lasted from 2017 to (unhappy coincidence) June 2019. The fleet reverted to AF, but perhaps restoring the AF livery is a low priority

I think the Argentinian A330 may have been Spanish. Evelop A330 flew quite close to my house this morning on her way into LHR. Reg was EC-MTY.

Indeed! And this is no doubt the flight referred to by springheeledjack.
By coincidence, the Argentinian flight just passed overhead my place on it's way back home.

I also noted a Canadian 767 freighter coming in around 5pm, perhaps subbing for DHL, who strangely have been a bit invisible (to me) for the last few days in comparison to the last many weeks when they seemed to be very very regular.

The Cargojet B763 seems to have taken over from the Amerijet one on the daily CVG/LHR rotation.

Sort of LHR and General area comment

Looking at Fr 24 yesterday it showed an RAF C17 LHR to Brize which i thought must have excited some people lucky enough to see it. On closer inspection it was actuall y Northolt to Brize which i believe is not that uncommon. Just shows that FR 24 has its oddities in many aspects of its service. presumably Northolt is so close to LHR and uses LHR Approach was the reason. Didnt seem to get above 2500 ft which must have been entertaining for those below it .

I am getting a bit bored with the empty skies above me in Camberley- a few LHR inbounds a fee Mil Helis (including the inevitable Chinooks up and down the M3 making everything vibrate for miles around) seem to still be movements in and out of FNB no doubt reinforcing the fact that there really is one law for the rich etc. I had a moments hope today around 10390 ish when i was sure I heard a merlin spit or hurricane transiting to from a VE day flypast but sadly couldnt see it.

I was surprised top see a pair of BA flights inbound from JFK following each other. BA114 (G-YMML) passed near my house at 08:07, followed by BA172 (G-YMMI) 7 or 8 ,minutes later. During this period, it has become quite common to see early morning trans Atlantic traffic arriving on what seems to be the reciprocal of the usual outbound route, via Basingstoke and Southampton. Oh, and G-VLUX was not too far behind these, also from JFK.

Don't know about the two BA777`s, but the VS was a cargo flight (as most VS6xx flight nrs seem to be these days). Info courtesy 'thevssource.com'

They come in pairs!
A couple of minutes ago, 2 BA 777s flew overhear JFK-LHR, just 2 minutes behind each other. Ahead of them was a United flight arriving from ORD and behind the BA flights was another United flight ex ORD.
I have to admit, it is nice to hear these flights approaching. It looks as if there will be an American from MIA soon and then... quiet skies for probably the rest of the day!

Almost all (if not) the BA flights now are "Freighters", even from JFK.
