Did anyone else hear said An-12 crossing our patch SE
tonight just before I posted this @ 23:10
Hi there from Jim
I didn't hear last nights An12 but recently there have been a number of them leaving Doncaster Robin Hood to various destinations I've tracked them on FR
24. They are usually around 12-15 thousand feet and track directly over Manchester going south to France I think.
Also one last week went over Man down towards Leicester and onwards out over the North Sea and up to Gothenburg. Why it went that way I have no idea. They are operated by Ukraine air services and perform charters where required and Robin Hood seems to be used quite a lot.
Cheers from Jim
Thanks for the info Jim,will keep an eye (and ear) out for them. It certainly was an unusual throbbing sound, not like the ones we get used to (Dash 8's ATR's).
