Transport Plane over Lytham's River Ribble Estuary
Whilst taking pictures, by the River Ribble Estuary, near to Lytham Quays, this unmarked
Military Transport plane appeared, initially heading towards Blackpool.
It circled round and then flew towards and landed at the BAe Airfield at nearby Warton.
You could hear its engines for many minutes as it was taxiing.
Not sure what type of plane - possibly a Hercules - or its country of origin
