Nope this is probably 3 weeks ago. They sort of went over mine. Dad thought it was drugs, but most of its on the news if its like that, and the corn was short then so IDK.

Maybe it had royalty on board or it could have been a military airliner or its possible its Identification System had failed and therefore due to 9-11 it then had to be followed to the airport.

I've never known royalty to fly into East Midlands airport. They use Brise Norton or Northolt.

We had lots of military air traffic in Suffolk but I never saw a military passenger plane escorted by fighters.

Your 3rd suggestion is the most probable. However, I've heard that sort of thing reported on the news but there's been nothing about this 1 today.

What's more, even though they were flying slowly, the tornadoes had their wings back as if they'd been flying at high speed or were ready to. They were low too; much lower than airliners normally fly over here.

 Erhmmm !!...Me did order a particularly spicy vindaloo the other night and it was so hot it required a military escort for delivery !

Ewe should be pleased I was not onboard after eating it and then deposited the consequential ' rim-of-fire' luff down the pan...and then have it dropped as a frozen meateor !!...........with lime pickle,the  mint yoghurt thingy  !! and kulfi ice cream  luff and joy !!

The jets concerned were heading neither towards nor away from your direction.

It wasn't a delivery. They weren't weaving in & out of traffic.

OK i admit it,the eagle eyed beaver caught me . I'm flying to the Caribbean tomorrow and i though it would be wise to do a dry run with my personal bodyguard just to see if everything was OK with my flight path.

Why you may ask, well its because i can. Its the sort of thing very important people like me do, I'm special.  ;D
