Anyone Knows What Was That?

Thu Jan 11, 2007 9:33 am

Hey there, this morning around 7:00am, I saw a big aircraft in "V" formation with five other smaller aircraft, 2 on one side and 3 on the other. The big one seemed to be an airliner and the other five small one seemed to be fighters or very small private jet, very hard to tell a 30,000feet or so.... I live in a town called Gaspé in eastern Quebec, Canada and this is a very rare sight here!
Anyone has an idea what it could be?

THX!

Interception of an airliner or a VIP's personal aircraft with escorts?

I convert Jet A and 100LL into noise.

Well that's what I tought in the first place... But who can it be? Usualy, even the prime minister of Canada don't travel with military escorts... ...and five escorts...? I just don't know....

Anyone in Montreal or Toronto know about an important guess? Maybe even Quebec City...?
