A few people have commented on this mystery plane. Its not an E-3, its a 2 engine jet. Sort of AWACS Lite. And it is not in RAF livery. We get some odd military planes into Newcastle airport from time to time, but this thing acts strange. Where miliary aircraft refuel (or whatever) then sod off, this thing circles the city fairly low, a few thousand feet up, for an extended period. If planes are stacked up here, waiting for a slot, they tend to circle out over the North Sea a few miles away. Any ideas?
