Re: Caribbean Airlines over the UK in 2015?

They had 9Y-LHR and 9Y-LGW. The clue is in the registrations. Yes they were regular visitors to these shores, so your log is valid.

Andy,

Do you know where the Laudamotion A320s are being parked. Are they visible whilst still socially distancing, and not invading no go areas?

When I get a chance, I will log in to Planebase and see what it shows as being based in HK. It should be possible to filter out the airliners.
