ABC Wednesday: A is for A7-AEE


I spotted this Qatar Airlines A7-AEE shortly after noon on 28th December.

According to Flight Aware it was flying from Beijing to Doha.

However flightradar24.com identifies it as flight QTR24 from Doha to Manchester.

  1. Fantastic shot of the big bird in flight. There's something about how you shot it that really does make it resemble a bird. Carver, ABC Wed. Team

    That's a huge "bird".

  5. Even flightradar24.com don't always get it right - I once posted a photograph of a Thomson Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner coming over Hyde to land at Manchester Airport on which flightradar24.com said was a flight from Cancun to East Midlands Airport.

  6. It's not easy to photograph an aircraft in flight; I know because I've had to try numerous times to do the same thing when they fly over our house. I did manage to get a really special one of Northwest years ago that I used to have as my banner. Now gone just as the airline disappeared into Delta. Perhaps I shouldn't add this, but I still feel chilled when I see this kind of photo because it reminds me of the horrible days of 9/11.

  7. That is a fabulously clear photograph. I just love tracking site although where I live I'm usually looking up ships rather than aircraft.

  8. Splendid capture!

    I've never tried to photograph a plane in flight.
