4-ship Heading North

4-ship Heading North

Postby PiedPiper70 on Mon 13 Nov 2017, 11:43 am

At approx 11:20 today, 13/11/17, I noticed 4 contrails, very high, more or less line abreast, but no sign of actual aircraft. Seen from Diss in Norfolk they were west of me and heading North, approx.

Too high for Marham I would have thought - any ideas?

Thanks
Dave

Spotted the 4 and 3 group from Downham Market. A few minutes after the 3 passed overhead, a pair followed at about the same height and heading but couldn't get the binos on them this time. Any idea on if this pair may have been F-18s Gary or was 7 the total for Lossiemouth?

9 arrived at Lossiemouth, the four-ship was followed by a three-ship, then a pair.
