    Think its being passed on to Hi Fly so that may explain no livery yet

    M-YRGQ.Well that's what it came in as but may be re-registered before it leaves. Ex-gulf air A9C-LF and owned by Squadron Leasing V111 Ltd.

    Nice to see another airline with only a one stop over route to Auz :)

    Etihad to Brisbane still requires another stop, after Dubai, in Singapore. Still 2 stops but 3 flight legs of about even duration.

    We are talking about Emirates here which fly to Dubai. Eithad fly to Abu Dhabi.

    But anyway I know someone who went to Sydney not long ago and flew Eithad from Dublin to Abu Dhabi and onto Sydney. :confused:

    I'm well aware we are talking about Emirates but the post that I quoted (yours I believe) stated...'another airline with only a one stop over route to Auz.' and I only mentioned Brisbane because I do not know about Etihads other routes to Oz (which may or may not also include stopovers)

    Don't be so quick to dismiss peoples posts without reading them properly.

    Looked like an AA 767 at Pier B a little earlier. Assuming a medical diversion.

    Was this moved down to the ramp beside the stored A340? Noticed an AA 767 parked there on my way home from work.

    I'd say that was her alright. She's currently back on stand at pier b. She's listed on the flight info screens as a departure to Rome.

    It was towed to the west apron for overnight parking.
    I'd imagine the crew ran out of hours as a result of the diversion.
    AAL110 operates from Chicago O'Hare to Rome Fiumicino.

    Yeah that was the weekly cargo 747 alright, took off again around 13:00... Its nice to see that we have at least one still coming in to DUB...


  • Registered Users Posts: 960 ✭✭✭Conchir


    It's weekly? I don't doubt you, I've just never seen it flying in before. Is it usually very early morning?


  • Registered Users Posts: 690 ✭✭✭westdub


    It usually arrives between 10 and 12 ......

    A good time to see some interesting landings I'd say anyway.

    exactly what i want :)
    would the landings or take off be more exciting? i was thinking the take off you at the west end would be good to see the planes swaying as the go overhead

    Once you take off your generally getting further away from the obstical...i.e, the ground:D

    Its trying to keep everything straight and level for touchdown thats the challange..

    Hi, my first post on this forum.

    I recently moved to Dublin and ran into this forum for some spotting info for Dublin Airport, and I went there for the second time this Saturday, to catch the Air France 747, but got stuck there for the wind.
    ATC reported 24 Kts with gust to 37, had gust up to 48 a few times and it was something to see, planes are nose towards you during the approach, trying to balance on one gear at touch down. I was standing where the orange park sign is, for most of the time, and it is a farmland right there so it is open, and you could feel the wind in the back, almost knocked me over a few times.

    I was rather surprised that it only was one go-around during my stay. Really shows how trained these guys are.

    I am going back out there today as well, I found a new possition to stand on.

    Hope to see you there soon.

    Some gusts at DUB today! Some hairy looking approaches and the gusts seemed to be causing problems on the ramp. Both the 125 to ORD and 137 to BOS were delayed before i left due to gusts prohibiting the catering from being loaded using the scissors lift and resulting in trolleys being loaded via the airbridges!

    Wind seemed worse on the east side(cargo side) of Pier E as they were loading catering on the pier B side of Pier E with seemingly no issues. Felt sorry for the ramp guys today in them conditions.

    Was out at there today from one to half two,pretty good viewing.Witnessed just one go-around ei320,he abandoned his approach about 6 miles out earliest go around i seen yet.He looked as if he lost a fair bit of altitude on the way in.

    Cant seem to get dub on live atc working,its streaming but no sound anyone with the same problem?
