Duration:5 mins
we live in the u.k. manchester about 5 minutes from manchester airport.from my house,you can see most of the flight path as there is a large field at the front.

anyway me and two freinds were at my front gate one evening getting some fresh air,needed through all the paint fumes (decorating)you cant miss the planes coming into land and our atention drawn to a 747 coming in.it was on the flight path,but we all noticed an orange glow a few thousand feet above it.the plane switched its landing light on, and this orange fireball turned a cloudy white colour and just shot off at somthing ive honestly never seen before ridiculous speed.my two freinds were freaked out,you get a good view of the night sky where i live and ive seen some strange things,always on the glide path to manchester airport.
