'Enormous' (possibly cargo) Jet over Manchester area 6th Sep

Post by tdp2612 » Sun Sep 10, 2017 4:05 pm

Hi, new to this forum and not massively knowledgeable about aircraft in general. No photos or anything to help explain, but apparently there was a large quad engine jet somewhere near to Manchester, possibly even for Leeds, at about 2pm. Don't know any further details, but if anyone has any ideas I'd like to hear them. Thanks,

Thomas

An Emirates Airways A380 routed over the south of the city after taking off from Manchester Airport at about 2.20pm that day. A380s are a common sight at large airports nowadays (several each day in & out of Manchester for instance), but being the world's largest passenger jet, it's an awesome sight if you haven't seen one before! :)

Even bigger than the A380 and an infrequent visitor to Manchester.
