Wednesday 13th February Report

Movements of interest from today included Ethiopian B737 MAX 8 ET-AVK, which operated in place of our usual B787 due to very poor loads. As a result of Belguim air traffic controllers being on strike its usual transit via Brussels was cancelled. ET728 flew direct from Addis Ababa which took 8hrs 22 minutes and therefore most likely was the longest scheduled flight ever flown by the MAX 8! Etihad B787-10 A6-BMB operated its 2nd visit on EY15 from Abu Dhabi. Twin Jet Beech-1900 F-GTKJ arrived early afternoon from Nurnberg also on its 2nd visit as TJT031P and left just over an hour later to Nantes as TJT212B. And Falcon 7X M-GGBL arrived mid-afternoon on its 1st visit.
