One of the biggest planes in the world landed at Leeds Bradford Airport last night.

The Boeing C17 Globemaster touched down in the city from Canada as part of a military training week.

Dozens of plane spotters lined the runway boundary to catch a glimpse of the plane on its arrival.

Running until May 18, a week-long military training event is being held at Leeds Bradford Airport.

A spokesman for Leeds Bradford Airport said: “From 11-18th May, LBA will be hosting a Military training week with aircraft from the UK and overseas operating at the airport. Look to the skies for some unusual visitors.”
