Donald Duckling Update

One-off chance

This morning (18th Oct), a new Kenya Airways B737-800 is on its way into Manchester airport.

This aircraft is on its delivery trip from Boeing to Nairobi. I would estimate it could be at Manchester around 08:45 (ish) and is scheduled to depart Sunday evening at 22:00.

The reg is 5Y-CYA and the flight is KQA738 and is showing on planefinder.

As I say, a one-off chance to see one of Kenya Airways aricraft at Manchester.

I did see a lot of photographers waiting on 27R

And I did feel a bit sorry for them.

Just to say that if the landing runway is 27R

And the departures on 27L Are a slack,

the ATC will always try to accommodate  to land the A380's on…
