Looks like it's RRR816 ZZ178 which is on all trackers (including FR24) and currently heading north over Liverpool, it's also due at Newcastle and Birmingham this afternoon.

What an awesome sight the C-17 was Yesterday. Loved watching it going over, must be some time that the overhead hold has been used, think in recent times I have only seen an A400 using the EDN Hold as i used to enjoy seeing the likes of Nimrods, SHackletons even the odd Sentry in the Hold.

Not a bad day for Edinburgh Plane Spotters Yesterday not only did they get to see this awesome looking aircraft but earlier in the day there was the Air China Boeing 777.

Any chance of a PD by a Voyager? Especially a certain coloured one?
