Haha it comes into our work every day there is about five or six of them. The front lifts right up to load the wings on. Always get loads of plane spotters at end of runway waiting for it to take off

It was the Beluga it ran parallel with Leasowe road ,going towards Moreton, not seen it round that way before as it's usual route is past Shell.

It's the wings that get me,the body is massive but the wings look very small on the thing.

That thing surely can't fly! What a strange looking craft. Wish I had seen it in reality not just a photo on Google!

It's real and it does fly, every time Iv'e seen it, Iv'e been in Ellesmere port or just going down the old road to Helsby, I was suprised to see it flying level with Leasowe road on Wednesday must be something to do with flying into the wind.

Not sure how long the Beluga has been in service, but it superceded the Guppy which had 4 turbo prop engines - another odd looking plane!
