    Airbus a300f400-608st beluga

    Just seen the Beluga (F-GSTD) wing transporter belonging to Airbus Transport International going into Hawarden / Broughton from Finkenwerder Airfield the secondary Airbus factory to Toulouse. For anyone lucky enough to live near Hamburg, Airbus do daily tours of there factory where you can see the final stage's of aircraft production and see new model's being tested. Link to Airbus tours it's been translated by google.

    Just got a picture (extremely blurred due to the zoom) of it flying over my house in South Wales at 30000ft.
    En-route from Chester to Toulouse.

    It's an unusual looking a/c, i only live 15 miles from Hawarden so i am going to go down there and take some photo's. Have you ever seen the early version of the Beluga, it was called the Guppy. Here's a link to a nice pic. http://www.planelist.net/guppy.jpg
    All for now.
    P.S. just found this video of a Beluga at Hawarden.
