A British Airways flight has raised questions after it was spotted circling around Norwich.
The holiday provider does not usually fly into or out of the Norfolk airport.
The Embraer plane took off from London City Airport at 10.32 am and was in the airspace above Norwich by 11.02am.
It then did four loops over the city centre, going from Little Plumstead then west over to Easton.
This journey took around 50 minutes before landing.
