Thanks OW Wright,

I think it was the Boeing 747-409F/SCD. It was deffenitly not the Antanov. Have you any idea of what it was doing at shannon and more inportantly who opparates it.

Cheers man,

Just found out it's flow by Dubai (UAE) airforce pilots so it's military, only wearing civil reg.

I owe you one. :wink:
