I only ask, as I seem to remember reading somewhere that due to an RAF aircraft flying too low (possibly a Typhoon), flights had been stopped!

Some planes used to come over quite close to where I live up here, they looked like fighter jets also.

Great set of images. Where they taken from Bluebell by any chance?

@TonyC you are correct although this has now been lifted and I believe it was due to an unsafe exit rather than too low
