Jetliner escorted by 2 military jets
« on: 17/07/2007 17:33:27 »
While I was at the stables earlier today (about 12:30 I think) I saw an airliner flanked by 2 Tornado fighters heading in a North Easterly direction. I think that would put it on a course for East Midlands Airport. Has anyone heard anything about this? I can't find anything on the internet & nothing's been on TV news so far.

What are you talking about it is 12:30. Jm LoL. Wow that's weird IDK I'm not UK so I probably won't hear about it. Something might pop up later tonight.

I once saw two vetnam heicopters fly over my house. For what IDK but they did. It was werid. I never heard anything about it too.

He could be. That'd be AirForce one though. LoL. Does it look any different from a JetLiner?

I did wonder about that but visiting statesmen would not land at East Midlands Airport. It's a pokey little hole.

Also, about 15 mins before the 3 planes flew over I heard a military jet (could have been 2, I don't know) travelling fast. I didn't see it/them because usually by the time you hear them at that speed they've gone past.

Airforce 1 is a 747. This only had 2 engines. It could've been a 737. It certainly dwarfed the 2 tornadoes.

There was a security scare in the US. A plane was diverted to JFK (I think).

Nothing here either. It was either not worth mentioning or it's being hushed up.

We had two of those heicopters they used in Vitman fly over there house. I saw a fire and all, but I still don't know what it is about. We think they flew from Wright Patterson.
