This popped up on my FB feed this morning. Any of you aircraft buffs got any ideas as to what it was up to. Is it normal for aircraft to burn off fuel over populated areas when they have a large ocean they could use.



Plane spotters in Scotland have been left baffled by the bizarre flight path of a mystery aircraft. The Bombardier Global Express jet was tracked flying all over the southern half of Scotland on Tuesday afternoon, spending hours criss-crossing the skies without landing, according to the Herald. The mystery deepend when a spokesman for air traffic control service NATS said the plane was definitely not a commercial aircraft and suggested it was probably a military jet, while the Ministry of Defence said it did not belong to the British military.

Mystery Jet HERE




The Bombardier Global Express, flight number GLEX, was tracked flying all over the southern half of Scotland on Tuesday afternoon, jetting as far west as Jura before looping back to circle over Ayrshire before passing over Glasgow and heading south to Dumfries and Galloway at an altitude of 40-43,000ft.

Altitude 40-43,000 ft ?
Are you Yanks Spying on our dilapidated Nuclear Arsenal.?

If it wasn't ours why didn't we scramble jets to take it down or have a look who it is?.

It was an English recon plane trying to find and eliminate the last of the few socialist that exist in the country. What we English see is a beautiful country full of English haters who could have made a difference to world politics but wanted to stay with GB and milk the system. Why did you not leave the monster that is britian.
Don't worry about the plane as it was only Cameron assessing where he can develop your southern areas for his mates to have holiday homes and come and sleep with your wives on their wedding night.
If the north of England had a vote to leave GB we would get almost 90% saying yes.

90%? erm no I live up north and no that would not be the outcome of any poll or vote.
Also seeing who the new Labour leader is socialism is on the rise here in the UK.

Turning into a politics thread after 4 posts...predictable and pathetic in equal measures.

Nothing unusual about it. It was an RAF Sentinel R.1 serial ZJ692. I saw it take off from RAF Cranwell, Lincolnshire as I live next to the flight path. They are normally based at RAF Waddington along with all the other intelligence collection assets. Currently RAF Waddington's runway is being re-laid so the aircraft are dispersed to other operating bases such as RAF Cranwell and RAF Coningsby.

en.wikipedia.org...

The operating height is also nothing unusual. They are regularly seen operating at height on exercises and tests where they can make full use of their Synthetic Aperture Radar.

See following video for a media visit on board a Sentinel operating over Iraq/Syria.

totally agree with the socialist part. The percentage may be a little high. We in the north were looking to the scots to shove 2 fingers up the establishment in uk and help break the hold they have over us. we would have supported the scots all the way.
Please have another referendum and do the right thing for the future of politics, with Corbyns help we can end the paedophilic psychopathic rule forced on us by the Tories.

Why the denial then.?

Probably a Russian stealth craft.

They have been buzzing us more and more frequently these days.

Have the M O D ever acknowledged anything. If it was not military then they would have scrambled or at least contacted it. If it was hostile it would have been escorted and shot down if not compliant. Have we forgot what planes did to usa.
No unidentified plane of any size will be allowed over british waters or land as it could be terrorism and not Russian or American.
Its one of ours.

Why would they even say anyhow? even If it is one of ours.

So far we have a aircraft, flying between 40-43,000ft over Scotland, Never made contact with Glasgow, never made contact with Prestwick, The RAF have denied it was one of there's and it was allowed to fly unmolested back and forth repeatedly for a few hours over a Nuclear facility.

Now what would happen if this plane did the same thing over Manhattan. ?

OK, What was it doing other than wasting fuel waiting on the tarmac to dry..?

Ask the M O D im sure they will tell you the reason as it wont be a matter of national security. after all we are not under threat at this moment in time. Does anyone think we would not have intercepted an unidentified aircraft and just made another cup of tea.
As to wasting the fuel. They are so frugal when it comes to using taxpayers cash as they would have turned of the engine to save a few quid. REALLY, is that the what is bothering people, a waste of resources

I spotted a sharp u-turn trail last night and snapped some pics and a video (very similar to that posted above). I took the pics because I have seen a number of these sharp u-turn trails over the past few weeks and was starting to wonder what was going on.

I posted them on f/b last night and someone sent me the link to the story in The Herald.

I have to say, if both UK Civilian and UK Military deny any knowledge, why the hell wasn't there an RAF response??
