By a mile the best catch of the trip to London, and one of my best catches ever! It’s my first catch of a Boeing 747-SP! Me and my mate Ryan just arrived at London Stansted as Ryan noticed on Flightradar that it was about to turn onto finals. An epic suprise! It was A4O-SO from Oman, aged at a almost 40 years! There are only a handful of 747SPs still flying today so they are incredibly rare! Boy I am so happy to have caught this beauty! Enjoy the video!
