Anyone see the monster plane circling over Wirral(Heswall)> 3.20pm ish. Looked like a military plane with 4 engine and massive tail. Nearest I can find is An Airbus A400M military transport plane or more likely a Boeing C-17 Globemaster

From the Echo:

"A spokesperson for Liverpool John Lennon Airport said the 53m-long aircraft is taking part in routine military training.

The plane is performing low approaches to another radar vectored circuit, before repeating the entire process."
