A huge military plane was spotted circling "low" in the skies over Liverpool.

The C-17 Globemaster III, owned by the military, took off from RAF Brize Norton at 12.52pm on Thursday, June 9, and headed straight up towards Wirral and Liverpool. The plane was then seen circling over Liverpool by an eyewitness at around 1.35pm in Bootle.

After circling multiple times the plane headed straight back to RAF Brize Norton, and after circling four more times, it landed at 2.40pm.

The C-17 Globemaster III is a long-range, heavy-lift strategic transport aircraft that can operate close to a potential area of operations for combat, peacekeeping or humanitarian missions worldwide. C-17 is capable of rapid, strategic delivery of troops and all types of cargo to main operating bases anywhere in the world.

The Globemaster’s load-bearing rear ramp and digitally controlled loading systems, combined with the skills of its crews and ground handlers, enable large, complex items of equipment, including Chinook helicopters, military vehicles and other heavy items of specialist kit to be loaded.

The RAF carry out training exercises across the UK in readiness to deploy around the world at any given moment, just as they did in 2017 to help with the Caribbean hurricane relief effort and their ongoing Operation Rescript which is helping to tackle the pandemic. When carrying out training activities, the RAF try to keep local residents aware via social media.

However, it is not always possible for them to alert people or say how long exercises will continue for security reasons.
