Nearing the Biden-Putin storm!
Monday 7 June: an Avcon Jet aircraft went from Geneva to Moscow Vnukovo, and later a Falcon 900 of TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd came from Moscow Vnukovo via Nice. Both aircraft went to the north of Belarus. However, an Embraer Legacy 600, registration T7-SYL (San Marino) flew to and from Moscow Vnukovo over Belarus. This latter aircraft is supposedly owned by an entity called VJET Inc, but a quick investigation via Linkedin immediately shows that it is controlled by Russian-based persons.
It will be interesting to check other flights to or from Moscow and see which overfly Belarus!
Monday 7 June: a Cessna CJ3 jet , registration S5-CES (Slovenia) flew from Geneva to Athens then on to Moscow Vnukovo. Slovenian authorities have forbidden overflights of Belarus for three months. However, this flight from Athens also avoided flying over Ukraine.
Monday 7 June: a Falcon 900 owned by Gazprom (Russia) flies all around Geneva for 2 hours. Curious!
Monday 7 June: A Canadian Learjet 35 ambulance aircraft came from Toronto to Geneva via Reykjavik. Since this aircraft requests no tracking one can wonder if anyone from Toronto wants not to be seen coming to Geneva.
Monday 7 June: A Bulgarian Government Falcon 2000 coming to Geneva from Sofia.
Tuesday 8 June: T7-OCC, a San Marino registered Citation 750 of Unifox Holdings Ltd going to
Wednesday 9 June: CS-TFO, a Portuguese LearJet 4 going to Brac Island, in Croatia. Is this a new holiday spot?
Thursday 10 June: Another San Marino registered aircraft of VJet on the Geneva to/from Moscow Vnukovo flying directly over Belarus. Also over Belarus was a Maltese Gulf 5 owned by Emperor aviation based in Malta), plus a Falcon 2000 owned by Gazprom. This latter aircraft flew without any call (a vain attempt to be anonymous!). However, an Austrian Gulf 5 belonging to LaudaMotion (after Niki Lauda) did avoid overflying Belarus.
Friday 11 June: the visit of the first of four American Globemaster 4-engine cargo transporters this week, aircraft belonging to the US Air Force. With the current weather conditions they have all been landing over Vernier and taking off over Versoix. A check of the ARAG noise measurement station in the region of Satigny/Vernier shows that these landings are always the loudest of the day. After unloading their cargo they then go to the US Air Force base in Ramstein, Germany.
Saturday 12 June: the arrival from Russia of two llyushin IL-76 4-engine aircraft. These venerable aircraft are, like the US Globemaster, rather noisy!
Sunday 13 June: The remaining three USAF Globemasters coming from the USA and then going too Ramstein .
