Finally, everything lined-up to capture photos of a trijet!

FedEx MD-11 operating flight FDX2 from Memphis to Stansted today.


Normally these cargo flight pass well to the South, which is useless for photography as they are backlit by the Sun. Indeed this aircraft had been preceded by FDX36 ( Indianapolis to Stansted ) about five minutes earlier on a southerly track.


Right at this time, according to Flight Radar 24, there are only 26 trijets airborne in the entire World of which three are in passenger configuration.
