As well as commercial passenger planes, a large number of private jets and military aircraft also land at LBA, some of which use the Multiflight engineering and maintenance base.

Unusual visitors last year included a WW2-era restored Spitfire which was forced to shelter at the airport during a storm while flying to Scotland, and one of the world's largest aircraft, a C17 transport plane.The stream has been live for three days and has already been watched more than 3,500 times.
