Whats Just Shook My House At MAN?

Sun Jul 09, 2006 6:17 pm

Hi,

About 2 minutes ago a very loud sounding aircraft shot over my house. It definitly was not a commercial aircraft on its way into MAN as it was too quick, it sounded much like a fighter aircraft and it was gone before I could get a look.

I live in the Tyldesley area which is about 15 miles North of MAN.

Any help is appreciated.

Most likely the red arrows flying down after a nightstop in Blackpool heading south to sussex I believe.

They were supposed to be overflying Wilmslow for the Wilmslow Show.

Yep, just saw them, flying in a V formation  Cool

They were heading in a southerly direction.

Thanks for that, a shame I didn't see them. Last time I saw them I was about 14  Smile

Yep, sure was the red arrows, they shot over me in Stoke at about 10.25am, as was said, in a V formation heading south at about 10,000 feet
British Caledonian...we never forget, you have a choice
