Low flying plane over rotherham 22:35

Recommended Posts

Horrendous noise! Definitely not a helicopter. A definite plane noise! Woke the entire house! Very frightening actually.

 

We aren't on the Doncaster airport flight path.

 

I even panicked it was a plane about to crash!!!!

 

Any idea where I could find out what was going on?

People on facebook are saying it was a 24 year old Russian cargo plane that departed from Doncaster?

It was a cargo plane Ilyushin ll-76TD flying from Doncaster. Destination wasn’t given on Flightradar24.

Did it fly over Sheffield? I heard a very loud aircraft at around 10:45 last night.

It was taking Aid over to Indonesia, very loud and quite low when it went over

It must have been heavy loaded using its full capacity to get up in the air.

Yes, it was flying in that direction.

Thank you for the information. It is good that aid is being taken to Indonesia. The noise was of no consequence - it soon passed.
