Yes. Because they're testing them against things more easily and readily available in other locations.

Some areas near Scotland allow systems to experience certain environments and conditions that would be useful in testing a capability.

Is there a new system that needs to experience Tennents Super and Tramadol I am not aware of?

My guess would be Obama is going to pay you a visit soon and they were just looking at what golf courses he might like

The Russian Air Force and Navy do seem to like Scotland, must be the whisky - keeping our QRA boys busy.

(Sorry offtopic) - Jukiodone.....I nearly spat my tea out when I read your comment about Tennents, very funny!

Considering the sightings there, do you blame them?

up to no good. why?

"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.
The US air force, which has servicing and re-fuelling contracts with Prestwick Airport, also use the Canadian-made planes, but Prestwick Airport said the jet had not been in touch on Tuesday."

The flight path for one of the ASTOR aircraft was tracked from takeoff, to the area where it orbited, and returned to its base.

'Mystery plane' over Scotland was RAF training flight

Dont know why it was denied in the first instance. Maybe just lazy journalism. ?

There was a bit of furor earlier this year when a Russian "spy plane" overflew the UK....luckily it was all OK though as there was an RAF guy on board as per the Open Skies Treaty...

Unrelated to the mystery flight in the OP, but I thought I would share one of my own "Mystery Aircraft Scotland" experiences:

I originally come from a few miles outside of a village called Muir of Ord, about 20 miles north-northwest of Inverness. This would have been round about 2000/2001, in late Sept or early Oct, witnessed by myself and 3 others, over the course of around 40 minutes. My folk's house is amongst farmland, no streetlights and only a handful of houses dotted amongst fields.

Myself and a friend had taken some rifles out to try and thin the rabbit population around the area one evening. We'd gone a couple of fields over from my house, bagging a few as we go when we catch a glimpse of two lights, one red, one green, dancing in the sky to the south-east. By my memory's estimate, this would've been around 20:30 on a clear night, so no sodium glow on low cloud from the village to the west or Inverness to the south-southeast.

The motion was most analogous to having two mouse cursors on a screen, not moving wildly, but certainly with high pace. The appearance of each of the lights, asides from colour, was the same. Solid, not blinking nor wavering in intensity and both displayed the same degree of freedom of movement. We couldn't discern any planform housing the lights, so it was pretty difficult to judge how distant they were from us. There was no sound, and as best I could perceive it, they seemed quite distant, possibly out past Inverness but that is speculation on my part.

We continued on over another field while keeping an eye on these lights, still doing as they had been doing for the past 15 minutes, until we arrived at a friends house. We called in and two of them came up to the top of their field with us (south-east view). We then witnessed a third, blue light blink into existence in the same area of the sky and join the dance with the other two. This carried on for about 25 minutes or so, after which the lights blinked out together.

The two closest RAF bases at the time were Kinloss (Army since 2012) and Lossiemouth, both of which are down the Moray coastline in roughly that direction. We have no idea what we saw, maybe this belongs more in the UFO forum than here, but I love the insight you sometimes get in this one

The red and green lights were wingtip navigation lights. Red is the left wing, green is the right. Not sure about the third.

Sorry, I should have clarified, the lights moved independently.
