    Opening this thread in the hope it can be updated so that more can see the 747 landing/taking off from, I guess only SNN/DUB.
    I was in SNN a while back with the kids to see a few takeoff/landings and was lucky enough to see a 747 cargo land, evergreen cargo I think.

    So any info on 747s into Ireland here please.

    Most likely Dublin or Shannon but you never know, one did land in Knock before.

    Ya there was a nice few 747s in knock over the years...the last 1 maybe 2001 I'd say.pro never see 1 in knock again tho....some size to see in such a small airport.

    SNN btw, not SHN.

    They're very rare in Ireland, but if you're going to see one it'll be Shannon to see it. They usually come about 3-6 times a year, sometimes more depending on cargo needs and passenger diversions.

    EI-XLC Boeing 747 ex Transaero in Dublin at the moment being painted for new operator Rossiya Airlines.

    There is one apparently due in the next few days to SNN for the bothar animal lift. National airlines are through fairly regularly with their 747s aswell.

    When Munster rugby were on top of their game we had a few 747 charters into Cork. Last one I was on was a Corsair 744 to Birmingham in 2008. I won't hold my breath but could we see those days returning both for the airport and Munster rugby.

    I presume that's the one that's just left Hahn and is westbound now?

    Any idea when it's going back out?

    Within a few hours at a guess. It is taking out a load of livestock, there has been a large collection of animal pens gathering in the airport in the last week or so.

    Just follow your nose I suppose.:D

    Virgin operate B744s weekly into Belfast though the Summer. They have confirmed that they'll be back for 2017.

    Probably won't be replaced by A350s until 2019 at the earliest.

    Is this a joke? Are you telling me sheep are being transported by jumbo jet out of this country?

    No it happens quite a bit. These are either belonging to the bothar lift for charity or are destined for the Middle East.

    FR24 shows that it was on the move at Victorville at 1940z last evening but it does not show a departure. Anyone know more?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,834 ✭✭✭EchoIndia


    EI-XLG appears to have air-tested from Victorville earlier this afternoon though coverage in that area must be a bit patchy as it disappeared off the screen after 15 minutes or so in the air.

    There's considerable trade in Irish sheep to North Africa and Singapore for ritual sacrifice. Ironically, given their ultimate fate, one of the key reasons that air transport is preferred is because of the low fatality rate, something like 0.01%
