A noisy cargo plane, which Manston’s complaints department will undoubtedly tell me is a late arrival.
I learn from Twitter it was N383WA, a World Cargo Airways McDonnell Douglas MD-11.
As well as being one of the noisier planes to use Manston, the MD-11 is an incomprehensibly badly designed plane with a startlingly poor accident and safety record.
