C-17 Flying Over Manchester, UK

Fri Jan 13, 2012 6:37 pm

Hi guys,

Don't normally come around these parts but today I photo'd a C-17 flying over Manchester at around 2.30pm and was just wondering where it was off to. It was flying roughly the same direction as the trans-atlantics.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys

Any ideas?

My guess it would most likely be RAF or USAF. I am not 100% sure but if it was USAF then it may of come from Ramstein AFB in Germany and heading back to the US.

It was an air assault by the Happy Mondays. Look out for falling Bez.
