There are more than one aircraft flying around it could be.

Yep, that was what I was alluding to. Even though I don't think it is the green lady I am hearing, I also have no idea what it is.
But whatever it is, it has a very distinctive engine tone

Ah, the good days when they could keep things like that so secret no one knows they're flying around.

I'm so glad those days are gone.

That's why it's great to fly or test aircraft over where I live. Because for 300 days of the year it's either raining or under cloud cover !!

The North West is basically 364 days a year of cloud and rain!!!!

Shame we don't know when we're going to hear as I'd love to sit up on Shap and maybe see something

I have heard it plenty of times, but never a set pattern apart from around 2-4 am. It really seems to fill the whole sky though. I actually went out one night to try and get an idea of its general direction. How sad is that !
Good luck with sitting on Shap, the only way you know it's summer there is the rain gets warmer

Hahaha we've just said that exact phrase at work about the rain getting warmer up here as I work near there. Would a tanker show up on flight radar? Maybe if I hear it again I'll have a look for a tanker off the North coast of Scotland.

No, but it would on ADS-B Exchange. They show up all the time on there.

Hmm would it give a specific model of the tanker at all like KC 135T?

Yes. It gives model, tail number, and pictures as well as callsign and hex code.

That's brilliant thanks for sharing that. It was just a thought that maybe we could find out if it's using JP7 as the T model could separate the different fuels couldn't it?

It can, but the only way to know is to watch them pump it into the truck and the truck load the tanker.

Does speed of a plane factor into whether JP7 will be needed or just altitude?

It's usually all about speed. The airframe heats up so much that they have to use the fuel as a heatsink. In the X-51, they ran it through the heat exchangers, then through the rotating parts of the engines and equipment to lubricate them.

Keep in mind that they can turn off the ADS-B. I've seen two K35s fly east out of Kansas with a third coming from further in the Southwest. The two from KANG were together and the third was looking like it was going to join up. Just South of KC all three dropped off ADS-B. A bit later the two from KANG wet north of Indianapolis and the third was heading back west over Oklahoma.

I can't recall which models they were and exactly where the third one was out of.
