Star Air/Maersk B767F - Where are the blighters going?
« on: June 13, 2009, 09:01:00 PM »
Hi All

Can anyone shed any light as to the route/destination of the Star Air/Maersk B767 freighters that regularly show up weekdays around 8 to 10 pm, transiting through the EGCC (Manchester) area, there's generally two or three in fairly quick sucession most nights.(I'm picking them up at my home location in Marple,approx 6 miles east EGCC)

They are not ADS-B equiped so aren't tracking at all

At first I presumed they must be going to East Midlands, however their altitude around the high 20,000's o 30,000 ft suggests otherwise.

Managed to catch one whilst routing through Dublin last summer,early evening,but I'm damned if i can catch any of the so and so's!

Any ideas???

Cheers

Rich,

There are three. Edinburgh - EMA - Koln and Belfast - EMA - Koln are the ones around 20000ft. The high one, 30000ft+, routes Shannon - Dublin - Koln.
The Edinburgh is SRR6565, Belfast is SRR6977 and the Shannon is SRR6529. Callsign is WhiteStar.

Hope this helps,

John H.

That at least explains my hunch on Dublin,and now gives my some positional idea

Cheers

I wonder if these routes/flightID's will be shown in version 2.1.....    Will the routes be in the new tables, or will users need to add them to their individual databases?

Best view for RB is North of a line between EGNT and EGNC  - includes OTA and Spade, to EGPH above 7500ft.   Can be TRUE mobile with Mobile Broadband feed to Network.

I can tell you that the Flight ID's (and logos) are shown in V2.1, but I don't think that there are routes yet.
