On Sunday at about middayish I heard loud aircraft noises so went out to see and there was what looked like an airliner and 2 fighter jets heading east.  It looked like they were escorting the airliner, but as I watched another large plane appeared and so there were 2 large planes and 2 fighters.

I assumed then that they were RAF?  :-\  ???

As I said, the RAF don't do weekends. The balloon would have to go up before they got out of bed on a Saturday or Sunday ;D

They were a French Navy Falcon 50 , and two French navy Rafale fighter jets. They left the airshow at Yeovilton on their way home together, and did a photo-shoot over Lyme Bay.

Treated to our own personal airshow at Tunnies Towers yesterday, 2 Apaches overhead for a hour or so, then what must have been all the Chinooks that took part.

We are right next door to Sandhurst Military Academy, I think they have approval for low
Flight? As they come in mega, mega low over our house.

They're practicing for the Trumpster, or more accurately what to do if any protesters get too close. Several reports of fast roping practice from Chinooks and the SAS Dauphins.

I saw this!!! I saw a Chinook take off with ropes at either end, Initially I thought it was carrying something. So good to know!

I'd have thought, as a glider pilot, you'd already know better than to get into anything where the wings are moving faster than the fuselage? ;D

Fuel bills likely to be a bit eye watering, though, even with your "miss daisy" driving style. ;)

Anything that ugly is naturally repelled by the earth, meaning it doesn't even have to be working. :y
