Passenger jet circles Moulton

A PASSENGER jet circling Moulton since around 9am today (Monday) is likely to be on test with the RAF.

Civil Aviation Authority spokesman Richard Taylor said the RAF had acquired a number of aircraft, including the Airbus A330, and were putting them through their paces and training their pilots.

The aircraft will be used to transport military personnel.

Moulton resident Jean Jermany, of Station Road, said the plane was still circling early this afternoon.
