Hi,

Not good week for contrail spotting, only 2 pics in whole week :-(. Bad weather is blocking the sky for several days now.

20:40, Aeroflot 767's are rare for me. Must be a lot of passengers on Saturday, because 767 replaced the usual A320/A321's on this route.

That's all.

Hi Asdrius,

I also saw an Aeroflot yesterday for the first time :-)
It was AFL317 UUEE-KIAD but did not get a photo :-(

For the last couple of days there had been some very unusual traffic over England due to change in the North Atlantic Tracks, flights which I normally see are routing more North than they usually do.

regards,
James

ContrailsUK but it's nice thing that espacially long range flight routing is not constant, they always change. Keeps contrail spotting not so boring. ;-)

For me when winds at high altitude are favorouble I see lot of eastbound long-range flights from europe to asia, but when winds change all eastbound flights dissappear, but westbound flights returning from Asia appear. So I never lose, I always get either eastbound or westbound long range traffic above me :-) Of course I would like to have both at the same time. :-)
I guess it is similar situation for you with north atlantic long range traffic.

Yes, it is a similar situation for me, at the moment I have a lot of westbound traffic on the Southside airway (UN20), and little amount of eastbound traffic. Westbound traffic is not as good for me as aircraft fly in front of the sun at this time of year, so I rarely taken pictures. Eastbound traffic routing via the northside airway (UM140) makes better pictures with the sun shining on them.

Looking forward to winter with crisp, clear, blue skies 8-)

Thanks,
James.

Hi,

Few more high altitude shots yesterday:

First time ever I observe Aerosvit transatlantic flight above Vilnius. It's a pitty without contrails :-(

I also experimented yesterday with low altitude traffic. Airplanes, arriving to Vilnius Intl. from southwest being vectored to intercept ILS rw20 glideslope, pass above me around 2500-3000ft altitude:
DLH3252 a B737-500 from Frankfurt:

CSA872, also B737-500 from Prague:

LOT771, an ERJ170 from Warsaw:

LIL471, and another B737-500 :-) from Paris:

Overall it was very difficult to capture them, they move so fast over me, when at low altitude. :-) I guess I'll have to keep picturing high altitude traffic.
