A400M

Post by mikeysoft » Wed Jan 04, 2017 1:12 pm

Anyone see the A400M doing a couple of approaches at Warton a short while ago? Saw it from my office window! Anyone capture it (photos etc.)?

I saw it too - unfortunately, no binos to get an id. Shame.

Possibly not T&G at Warton as the flightpath into 25 is approx 1/2 mile North of my house along the Northside of the Blackpool Road over Preston , ZM408 went over south of me above the Docks and River more likely on the Blackpool Approach to 28 which the "JET2" 737's used to use inbound over here

I think you are right it didn't seem on the approach path to Warton

Hi All

Has anyone got an ID on the A400M that's been doing circuits today (16/3/17), flew directly over my place of work. Cheers.
