    Thomson 747 at LGW this morning

    Hi Guys,
    This morning at appx 07.00 was looking out of the window as deps were on 8R and a 747 of Thomson.com went past the window--anyone any idea why it was here???--nothing on the BAA site about it taking off, or didnt appear to be a go around from landing!
    FAB THOUGH-COULDNT FIND THE SCANNER QUICK ENOUGH!

    Thomson have 747's? As in 747's that say Thomson down the side of them? The only 747's in that blue scheme I know are the Corsair ones. I'm confused...

    Thanks Guys,
    I saw the colour and the shape and the tail logo as the .com bit--obviously half asleep!!
    that was obviously what it was!
    wish it was a regular visitor--heard a rumour that BA 747's may soon be back here??????????

    Corsair also have A330's which in my opinion look good in the Tui livery - Then again, most A330's look good.

    Just because Corsair is a French airline, does not prevent it from operating charter flights to/from London...my friend who went to the match (he's a Chelsea supporter :diablo told me they flew from Luton on an Air Finland 757, so anything's possible!

    It was indeed a Corsair 744 doing a Champions League charter. Other footy charters into LGW included FlyGlobespan 763, XL France A320, Flightline MD83, 2x VIA A320s, XLA/Iberworld A330, Blue Panorama 763, Dubrovnik Airlines MD83, JetTime 733, Orbest A330 and Air Slovakia 757.

    Cheers
