Jet2 Circuit Flight back in April @ EGSS

Good morning!

Back in April I think the 10th, I went to London Stansted Airport EGSS/STN (my local airport just 20-25 minutes up the road from me) and back then as you could imagine, there wasn’t anything really going anywhere, apart from some planes going up in the air for a quick circuit (maintenance check flight) I think it’s called!

Below is a picture I took of a Jet2 737-8MG going up for a quick circuit before landing again…

Great picture! I especially like that you managed to catch the strobe light, which is always a very cool thing to have :) Thanks for sharing!
