14:00L REACH042 returned and landed after convoluted flight via BAMRA? (NW Orkneys) / STN / TIR / GOW / LUK. FL2200 maintained for duration of flight until in descent departing GOW.
Strangely no comms heard on departure or arrival..... Any thoughts as to the reason for its visit?

Back on the ground at Leuchars 12:27L, as thought...same flight plan as yesterday. Bit surprised he landed so soon given his HEAVY callsign and only 2hrs airborne (MTOW >300,000 Lbs/136 tonnes). Thought he may be over his Max landing weight?
