    4 Contrails over NCL question?

    hi guys

    i often when daydreaming at work see planes flying high with 4 contrails when the sky is clear

    they are quite frequent but im not sure where they would be going passing over ncl any ideas maybe prestwick or glasgow?

    or is there air routes over here going to?.....


    any ideas

    jason

      I've seen plenty heading west (and east), thats 8 miles east from NCL. Maybe aircraft heading over the pond as they need to go close to Iceland/Greenland if im not mistaken.

        They'll be heading for the north atlantic track and ultimately one would presume the USA. Skirting Iceland, Greenland, Northern Canada etc on the way.

          I'd have thought they'd be well into their descent if they were PIK or GLA bound ?

            Some of the EGPH shuttles route over the VOR aswel, and I see the odd EZY. But Ren's right, they're all heading for the track, if you've got a radio listen out on erm...:

            EGPX_E_CTR : 124.500
            EGPX_W_CTR: 129.220

            Normally hear quite a bit about them on that.

              I watch them from home.....and the NEW is on the UL602 from Ottringham and it carries on up to Talla or Glasgow and then one of the Atlantic waypoints (most often it seems to be GOMUP) then onwards to Canada/US/Mexico. The inbounds to PIK/EDI/GLA are always FL260 or below past the NEW, which is off airways routes.

              The UL602 from OTR-NEW is covered by 126.925, 124.5 to the north, 135.85/135.52 to the north and west, with 126.77/128.12/121.32 to the south, southwest is the MAN_TMA and their many frequencies

              If you want any more info, just let me know

                  Going that far north I should imagine they are headed for the west coast of the states most probably from somewhere like FFM.

                    Probably quite a lot of KLM, Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS flights going to America or Canada

                      Oh XpBoy, thought you might also like the high level frequency, because Newcastle is in EGTT airspace, but in scottish's control responsibility I believe.

                      EGTT_N_CTR is on 131.05
