Breaking News ! A huge military plane caught the attention of people in the city centre today after it was seen circulating above the Liver Building. The plane was spotted by Andrew Taylor shortly after 1pm on Saturday, as it flew over the River Mersey before veering off and flying inland over the city. After doing some research online, Andrew said he believes the plane to be an RAF Atlas C.1. A second ECHO reader who spotted it over Kensington Fields also believes it to be an RAF A400 aircraft. The huge Atlas C.1 A400m aircraft which entered operational service in 2014, has the ability to carry a 37-tonne payload and can operating at altitudes up 40,000ft. It also has impressive low-level capability and can carry 116 troops fully equipped, as well as vehicles and helicopters.

. "I was standing outside work and saw it approaching, it seemed to be coming along the river then it veered off and flew inland over the city. "It was flying so low that I actually got concerned that it may have been in distress. I also noticed how quiet it was which I assume is because it was powered by propellers. "I don’t know what it’s purpose was, perhaps it was on some sort of training mission and then the crew decided to do some some sight seeing across our beautiful city."

"A few weeks ago three helicopters flew along the river in formation."
