Interesting flights to or from Geneva airport for the week from Monday 14 June 2021 to Sunday 20 June 2021.

The BP show (Biden-Putin, not British Petroleum!).

Monday 14 June: A Falcon 200 jet owner by the Bulgarian Government appears to have come to Geneva from Hyperspace. Maybe, for privacy, the pilot turned off the aircraft transponder information  .                                                                                        

Tuesday 15 June: The arrival of Air Force one, with President Biden aboard. The aircraft had stopped first in Newquay Cornwall for the G7, then London Heathrow (tea with the Queen), then Brussels  (NATO). Also this same day, two USAF Boeing 757 aircraft: one having followed  the same itinerary as Air Force one (probably the American journalists), the other not having stopped in Brussels. However, Delta Air Lines flew an unscheduled Airbus A330 from Brussels to Geneva.

Also on the Tuesday there came from the Moscow Vnukovo  executive airport an Ilyushin IL96 aircraft. Perhaps this contained the car to be used by President Putin , and maybe some secret service persons.

Wednesday 16 June: Putin arriving in the first of two Ilyushin IL96 aircraft. Perhaps the second was the Russian journalists. Both of these came from Sochi (where the Olympics were staged a few years ago).

As we expected, both presidents land their entourages left on the Wednesday evening: the Russians to Moscow Vnukovo and the Americans to Andrews Air Force base in Virginia. Interestingly, one of the American Boeing 757 had to make a refuelling stop in Bangor, Maine.

Thursday 17 June: Clean-up time! The three Globemasters, which had been waiting in the US military base in Ramstein Germany, came to Geneva to pick up a few objects (President Biden’s heavy limousine), then back to the USA, two to the military base in Virginia and one to theMarine Corps Air Facility Quantico, stopping to refuel in Bangor..

The special Delta airlines went back to Atlanta.

Friday 18 June: Two new destinations: a Gulf 5 of PPG INDUSTRIES INC Pittsburgh going to Allegheny County Pittsburgh via Pittsburgh International.

Saturday 19 June: A hot day for international flights (maybe related to the Biden/Putin exchange. An Albinati Aeronautics Falcon 7x flight to Kuala Lumpur and a Gulf 5 of Business Aviation Asia coming from Nanjing China.

Sunday 20 June: The second interesting flight was a Gulf 5 of Falconair , noise class 4, coming from Cape Town and arriving in Geneva, overflying Versoix on the approach. at 6h04 am. This was exactly 5 hours and  52 minutes after the last returning flight of the previous evening, landing at 12 minutes after midnight, also over Versoix  : an easyJet Airbus A320 (noise class 4) an hour late coming from Marrakech.

Just remind me how many hours it is recommended that we need to sleep each night! I seem to remember that it is an integral number between 7 and 9!
