Hi Colin,
There's an embargo around Europe against Iran Air, and I believe that their flights ex-Heathrow now refuel at Manston as they are not allowed to at Heathrow. See:

Cheers

I was browsing my log last night and came across an Iran Air return logged back in September this year. If it's not a miscode it's clearly a diplomatic mission to be flying around here. (KJFK)

The final altitude was listed as 3000', and being logged as Mode S I must assume it was landing somewhere in the extremity of my polar diagram.

Picked this up in Frankfurt while spotting in the LH Lounge. Watched it land and taxi in and out.
