Antonov 124 Kidderminster 2012

Post by ZH871 » Thu Feb 01, 2018 12:28 pm

Not sure if civilian or not, but captured what appears to be an Antonov 124 flying reasonably low over Kidderminster back in 2012. It has always bugged me since as to what it was doing out here at this level? Maybe somebody here could help, or point me in the right direction?

Can you recall the direction headed, and estimate of height ?
First thoughts were proximity of Birmingham or East Midlands. Here in London, I have seen An124's below 18,000' heading for Brize Norton 70 miles away.
Had a look in old LAAS mags, nothing for 15th Dec but East Midlands had several An124 visits in the month.

It seems like your question was answered in your post on PPRuNe (I presume it was your post !) :- "RA-82079 arrived at Brize about 15:15 that day" :)
