Still watching it over NI.  Only showing Fleet Watch aircraft on the map to remove 'clutter'.

Went right over my head here today, but it's been overcast all day so no chance to see up to FL380. Now, yesterday it was a clear blue sky without a cloud in sight until well after the time the flight was due, but the NA westbound tracks were all southerly.

I made an educated guess Chris, I was not sure but I looked at the track the aircraft was making and thought it was likely they were on a southerly track.

dca tipped me off as to http://www.turbulenceforecast.com/atlantic_westbound_tracks.php

as a useful source for Westbound tranatlantic flights.

Canonjohns40D let me know that F-HPJA was routing Le Touquet-Lydd this afternoon.

So putting the two together (northerly t/a tracks) and current position, I too took an 'educated guess' as to the fact it was going to route via the Midlands.

Many thanks all concerned - this is how the forum should work - I was getting a bit fed up of the bickering last week on other threads - thankfully the nameless clown concerned appears to have been banned!

I've just played back my recording and F-HPJA passed about 2nm NE of my home. Had the cloud not been there I could have watched through my binocs!

Airnav: please may we have a recorded format that can be fast forwarded and reversed and stepped in time when playing back?  It would make the whole feature so much more usable.

So it is - apologies all!

Some dodgy data on certain web sites....

http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlightExtendedDetails.do?id=177740028&airlineCode=AF&flightNumber=6

Clear blue skies here too for a change

An embarrased Chris!

Too far east for me - just passing 5 nm east of East Midlands now!

Soon OTT Leeds Bradford possibly more Northerly than yesterday so perhaps no show here in NI after all.

Just watched it fly right over the house in a beautiful blue sky - perfect!
