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.

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.

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.

Hi Michael.. those are some good possibilities!

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.

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]
