First Service AFR006 CDG - JFK was Monday 23rd. Operates every day except Wednesday. Departs CDG at 1330GMT. Was trailing over North Derbyshire at 1414.

Daily flights start from the 28th January 2010.

AF6 currently showing three and half hour estimated delayed depature from CDG this afternoon...

So that ought to mean AF006 appears around my location in about an hour or so.

Here's hoping it's close enough to see and the clouds are not too bad.

I've told RB to record the local traffic...

Anyone know which North Atlantic track AFR006 will route on this evening? They seem to be heading west over France instead of crossing the UK up towards the north west Scotland area.

Track F entry point is at 52N 20W today, that's off County Kerry roughly.

Also what's impressive is how a heavy A380 can climb straight up to FL380, a lot of aircraft tend to top out at FL330 until they've burnt off some fuel.

That's hilarious - I spend all day monitoring news of its delayed departure - in the hope of catching my first A380 in MyFlights and it routes via the tip of Cornwall rather over the Midlands!
All very enjoyable - better luck tomorrow perhaps - it will still be delayed on AF7 return I presume.

Well, either they need to pedal it mighty fast to catch up those 3 hours, or they could pull a sneaky time slip and get back in sync a day later.

Yes, I would have liked to see it pass by here but then it is dark now....

Just disappeared off the network, interesting to note they were offset to the right of the airway all the way from northern France to past Land's End. I suppose it doesn't matter, but since there was an airway to follow I thought normal practice was to follow it and back up the GPS/IRS with VOR/DME.
