#2

Refueling stop before heading further west?


#3

Why was it over here though?


#4

To move something big


#5

There have been other large cargo flights to Austin recently for what is believed to be Formula 1 race support.

While this wasn’t Austin, maybe it’s related?


#6

Doubt it - no F1 teams are based in Japan. Was probably some large piece of machinery.


#7

That’s not fair! It wasn’t going to Japan when I posted that. :slight_smile:

Does anybody know where it came from when it arrived in Texas?


#8

Originally came from Glasgow - see the history here for that particular plane:
