Leyland, just south of Preston in Lancashire!, directly under on eof the main trans-atlantic routes :)
Theres a few fly over my house going West. Atlantic?. Lots at the weekend. Well.... Lots for here. About 1 every 5 minutes haha. Also noticed ryanair isn't flying over my house on its way to London like it used to.

Probably a BA plane, their pilots are rumored to enjoy a few sips before a flight

The U turn may have been an inflight refueller turning around to do it all again. Could have been a turn back too. Calibration? THere are all sorts of reasons for a U turn.
