    According to flightradar 24 it's currently over Rochdale/Oldham way on it's approach. Disappointed it's not coming in over Northwich, unlucky.

    edit, sorry bluesteve, didn't see your post.

    Just passing over Stockport, it sounds like a doodle bug.

    just been over Staybridge but low cloud masked it. Makes a sound all its own though.

    Heard it from a long way out, then it passed over, but could only really see the outline. It looked a big bugger, though.

    As I speak, the A380 is overhead.

    I think in this context, 24 means Flightradar 24.com, as opposed to the runway, which is now 23 right, due to the magnetic pole moving slightly a few years ago.

    It's a really weird noise, then I went inside and could still hear it. These Russians sure know how to build these beasts.
