I saw that y'day, heading up  the other side of the Severn from a fly-over at Filton.  :thumbsup:

It's not easy to tell from a regular Beluga, except that the fin on the XL looks smaller. I expect it's actually because all the rest of it is larger though. The distinguishing winglets are invisible at any distance.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
