Strange aircraft in Welsh airspace.

#1
I live within spitting distance from the coast, North Gower over looking an estuary. We usually have all sorts of aircraft mainly Tornados and Hercules using it as a training ground (low flying around 150 metres ect...). Just heard what was a rather loud flyby so rushed to the window to have a look, maybe 200-300 metres high flying slowly up the estuary was a rather slick looking aircraft with twin tails like the ones you find on the F-15 or mig. I just checked on RAF website and we don't operate any aircraft like that. Are the Russians getting itchy again. Hopefully American!

That F15 from 48th Fighter Wing looks about it. Based over 200 miles away, why would it be in deepest darkest South West Wales!
Low flying area and bombing range,and its not far from Midenhall/Lakenheath in a fastjet, I was working on the tall chimny at Port Talbot Steel Works once and the buggers were coming around it below us

If your in Penclawd you should be downing "Feeling Foul" and cockles,not looking at the sky
"Penclawdd"

Tides out so no donkies and cockles are currently out of bounds which leads to fun packed days of finding anthrax and mustard gas shells left over from WW2 and plane spotting... Fairplay for finding my location, ooh how I long to live in Bridgend.

Go down the beach and give me a wave, I'm not in the campsite at Gateway but I can get on their CCTV

F-22 display team from Langley, will be back on our shores in the next few weeks for RIAT :) and maybe the first day of Farnborough :)

i'll be present at both shows, the latter more for working though. May take my chopper there.
