So that's what it was, in middle of my lunch and look out of my window to see a Qatar Aircraft but it looked bigger than our usual Dreamliner or Airbus A.350 looked at FR24 and nothing. Trust me not to have my binos or scanner when something like this comes in.

It was posted on a few Facebook groups. Seems to be the way forward these days as not much gets posted in advance on some threads on this.

Is there likely to be a return flight at some stage?

I've heard QAF5 A319 A7-HHJ is due 1130 today (Thursday) and the B748 is due Prestwick Friday
So I've heard anyway

Saw the A.330 at 11.30 as AMIRI 5, was the C-17 dropping off on the way back from Aberdeen?

Yes I also saw the RAF C-17, always a fantastic sight - very much Thunderbird 2.

Shame it wasn’t a Qatari C-17.
