Glasgow residents stunned by the sound of a Russian military flight carrying 300 cats and dogs as it flies over the city

A Russian military plane carrying nearly 300 animals flew over Glasgow this morning, with locals stunned by the sound of the powerful plane.

Residents were woken up by noisy engines flying over the town as the Ilyushin Il-76 plane crossed Scotland with hundreds of cats and dogs inside.

He is part of a Kabul Small Animal Rescue mission that aimed to bring pets to safety in Vancouver.



Flight Radar tracked the flight

Flight Radar 24, a real-time commercial aircraft flight tracking map, said the flight was to make another technical stop in Reykjavik before landing at Vancouver International Airport.

The flight flew over the outskirts of the town towards Loch Lomond at around 2.45am.

Flight Radar 24 said: “300 Kabul Small Animal Rescue (KSAR) dogs and cats are back in the air en route from Kabul to Vancouver.

“They will still make a technical stopover in Reykjavik before heading to YVR airport.”

Earlier this year, we told you about the ‘deafening’ moment when two US Air Force jets flew over a Scottish town, leaving residents ‘scared’.

Stunned Lanarkshire residents could not believe their eyes when the two fighter jets flew over the area around 5.35pm on Thursday evening.

A Blantyre resident captured the moment the second plane passed his house.

In the video, the noisy plane can be seen flying low in the sky with red lights on, under the clouds.

As it quickly shoots out of range, the thunderous sound of the jet can still be heard moments later.
