Thanks knx08

On Saturday over Vilnius I saw unusually large number of big airplanes flying from North America to Middle East on UM870 airway. But atmospheric conditions were horrible. Lots of haze, visibility 5-7km. I could see contrailing airplanes only for 1-2 minutes when they were almost above me. Still I tried to get some pictures:

This is propably the first picture of A380 Malaysia Airlines at this forum.
Taken last week (14 march) at Saanen in Switzerland. He was flying a test flight over the Alps from Touluse in direction of Zurich.

Hello,

Interesting livery shot grztus. Probably many Airbus test flights can be seen from that location.

Thanks for help with identification Gryni. It's difficult to identify those bizjets.

This week very bad weather over Lithuania, with no good forecasts for the weekend as well.

For this week I can only show one photo from Monday, again a Falcon 2000, but this time I managed to identify it :-) :
