The visitor was a Boeing C17 Globemaster transport aircraft, which is used by the Canadian military for the transit of personnel and equipment.

The plane was carrying air crew who were attending a ceremony in the UK and members of their families, who are allowed to travel with servicemen and women for ceremonial occasions.
