It seems that F-GSTD has been used in her normal roles since 18 Jul 14. On 23 Jul as BGA101 she conducted what looked like flight testing route to the west as far as Biarritz and back to TLS. FR24/BGA101 On 24 Jul as BGA102 she flew from TLS to NTE as BGA102. FR24/BGA102 later flew to LIG and did a circuit before landing. FR24/BGA102 Before returning later to TLS landing approx 1030 UTC FR24/BGA102
Seemingly F-GSTC conducted a similar flight as reported by dani on 25 Jul in BGA991 where F-GSTC flew briefly to the south of TLS before flying to and landing at GNB. She took of later just before 1400 UTC and flew several left and flight circuits of GNB before departing after just under an hour to returning to TLS by 1540 UTC.
These flights could be just testing flights if they were then with F-GSTB in BOD that would leave Beluga 1 and 5 doing the work load. Could it be crew training or to do with the holidays?
Other unusual occurrences on 26 Jul F-GSTA was visible in FR24 as BGA12345 FR24/BGA12345 Are the crew implying that that nr 1 is the only airframe flying? Adding to this the only flight thus far today was F-GSTA flew to XFW using callsign BGA113A instead of the usual BGA121 callsign BGA113A which is usually used on the TLS/SNR route, no need to de-conflict callsigns if you are the only one flying!
Would appreciate any light that could be shone on this.
Edit: F-GSTF in the air as BGA114F heading north to eitherNTE, STN or CEG at this time
