Question About "The Chase"

Hello all!

I almost never post in this forum, but watching a video most of you probably know (and love  Wink ) I saw something I'd like some opinions on:



"The Chase" shows an Alpha Jet and later a Mirage chasing it, that much is clear, but some 3:15 minutes into the video - almost at the end - the jets fly over some object in the ocean. I haven't been able to come close to identifying it - is it a ship with a mast, an island with a lighthouse, a submarine with the periscope extended or something entirely different?

Any help would be appreciated!

not sure. Could be an oil platform but there seems to be some wake coming off the upper left corner of it, which could also be from the water current. spooky stuff  Wink

Looks like a lighthouse on a small outcropping of rock. By the way, it's a great video set to horrible music.

I have to admit I kind of like it, for the time being.  guilty 

It probably is an island, I have a higher resolution version of the video on my PC and the structure in question is a) curved like no ship would be, b) causing a surf rather than a wake and c) too irregular in shape, height and width to be a ship. But then again, I could be totally wrong.

well with that tower and the higher res picture you have I would bet it is an oil and gas platform. But I am not sure of any that close to any coast of France, more so toward the north sea. interesting.

and yes the music is "blah"

I you go to http://www.patricksaviation.com/aviation_videos/ you can get a much higher quality version of this, & the object in question is a small island & lighthouse.


Can you hear me now?
