Hi, whilst waiting on the the bus stop this morning on my way to work and freezing my boll**ks off, I saw a BA 757 fly low overhead banking right and inbound to MAN (I assume runway 06) as it was flying over Stoke on Trent towards the north which they only use for landings if theyre not using runway 24. It came from Derby/Burton on Trent direction. Would this have been a shuttle from LHR or not? Was quite low seeing as it still had about 25 miles to run. Is this approach path used alot or not? I only tend to see departures over my place normally.

Yes would have been the LHR shuttle, MAN has been operating 06's for the past few days due to the prevailing wind from the north/east. Standard practice for arrivals from the south to fly to DAYNE and then either go into the hold or turn westwards before turning to line up on approach. At busy times you'll get departing aircraft on the LIS IS SID heading south having to be kept at 5,000ft to allow arriving traffic leaving DAYNE to pass above them.

Cheers Demoose, I know nothing about the paths in and out of MAN these days, i remember the flightpath over my house ( the one that the 757 was on) for departures used to be called CONGA 1 ROMEO but I heard that its no more, which would fit in with the fact that it used to be maga busy, especially in summer, but now its quieter these days. Also see inbound traffic to EMA and even EZY 737's headed for LPL too. Whats the crack with these paths over my house?

CONGA 1 ROMEO is now LISTO 1 ROMEO, it is still in use but only turbo probs and regional jets are given this routing as it requires a sharp turn almost immediately after take off. Most jet aircraft departing off runway 24L/R heading southwards are given the HONLY departure route.

That would make sense, only see 737's, A320's and turboprops usually out of MAN, unless theyre landing. I remember they used to make a sharp left turn, then right, noise abatement for Knutsford.
