Any Man Utd supporters waiting at Bristol Airport for the team to arrive for tonight's match are in for a disappointment......it's done a weather-divert to Cardiff.

NAX7109 788 LN-RNA Bcn to Lax just flown through UK airspace and IBE2621(operated by Level) A332 EC-MOU Bcn-Oak.Both heading North
Strange routings and must be very strong headwinds as only doing between 350-400 knots at 38000.
B763 UAL53 Zrh-Iad is only doing 315knots at 32000

No ID yet, but presume F-15s....currently have TRUST & OXE flights ( both flight-of-fours ) up on 373.775
Not showing on any of the usual flight-trackers

Edited to add... OXE may be HAWK ( or there may be 3 flights up ).....confusion caused by the Spams being unable to speak clearly in proper English :whistle:

There's nine other former SAS 737-600s and two -700s there. I presume SAS are swapping their -600s for CRJs to improve profitability on some of the smaller routes.

Why do we need to know that the pilot is female?

A bit sexist isn't it?
















There's nothing wrong with that as long as she's making nice cups of tea for the Captain. :grin:

I'm more interested in how BC managed to glean that information from FR24 or PlanePlotter!

The aircraft's showing on the various tracking websites, but I'm also listening to them.
I find it makes things a lot more interesting than just posting dry old 'Aircraft X is over Y heading for Z' reports.
