Large Amount Of Military Planes Overhead

Fri Mar 10, 2006 5:35 am

Hi guys

Just a little confused really,

i live in worcester UK and tonight it has been nothing but non stop military aircraft passing over my house heading South-East. Yes we do get the occasional one pass overhead but never this many. There has also been some very low fighter jets tonight too.

Can anyone explain what is happening?

Cheers

Paul

What types did you see? I live in Herefordshire and i saw a few harriers but nothing else. Last summer there seemed to be some NATO exercise, in the space of a weekend i saw f-15's, f-16's,A-10's (4 circling above my house for about an hour) mirages, C-130's as well as the normal Harriers, Tornado's, Jaguar's and i'm pretty sure i spotted a Typhoon.
