It was an Antonov AN-12 I think. It departed yesterday evening around 6.20.
It is interesting to note that there was another Russian Passenger Carrier in Liverpool
on the 26th, June, that was the cruise liner Seven Seas Navigator in a former life it was

If somebody mistakenly published the actual time and date don't be
surprised if the authorities take action due to the chaotic parking
