Around what time does anyone know?

I think she's expected in around 14.30 - 14.45 local (13.30z).

Interesting fact about it, Spoke to the guys on the ground who handled it when she was in UK a week or two ago and it took just over 3hrs to refuel it.

I'm not suprised one bit!!!!!!
It takes 300 ton of fuel sure
I'd love ta know what the max landing weight is?
They'd be an hour tryin to dump all that fuel
