With the Thomas cook colaspe.
There seems to be some nice traffic going into Brum today. Not a civvie spotter myself but work under the approach and this morning are see some types not normally seen. Nice A380 gone in with a blue bubble like design scheme. Guess these are what the CAA have drafted in from around the world to get home the stranded. Could be a good few days for the civvi snappers around Brum, with a camera.

Are you sure about the GAF A400M?
Apparently it got as far as Eindhoven and is u/s, or did they send a second one over? :smile:

Not ANA at all, but Emirates A380 A6-EOS operating the usual EK39 in this scheme :- https://www.airliners.net/photo/Emirate ... QuJg%3D%3D

So what else didn't actually arrive in Birmingham today? :grin:

Another example of why 'crediting info' sources' avoids shooting yourself in both feet! :lmao:
