Many thanks for the info, stratsys. I can't think of any other platforms operated in the UK which fit the description...?

It sounds like something new in development or something they were looking at. They recently made the formal announcement of a new uav purchase to replace their Reapers. They might have had a fly off.

Didn't they already select the predator b for that?

As i briefly mentioned on the first page the closest i have seen so far is the second image on this page www.gizmag.com... However i can't find any sign that anyone in the UK has bought or is testing this?

In the US it's 500 feet over the tallest structure when flying near a town. There are areas here and in the UK where it's pretty much as low as they want.


When I was a kid I used to go up to North wales and watch the Harriers and Tornados fly round the mountin ranges and valleys, was pretty cool.

Spotted a few American craft too I think this was back in the 90's

If it was a fly off or demo there wouldn't necessarily be anything about it to find.

Too bad you missed the best one from then.

What the Raptors?

Yeah would have been a treat to see them.

Hopefull in a few years the RAF will be running F-35s through there and I can see them.

No, there were some less than public visits in the 90s.

The question being, what was it that made that little unannounced stop by?

Just remember how limited parking is in your neck of the woods. I might have to park in....I mean at your house.

It would have been far more exciting if it had been Aurora that crashed at Boscombe that day.The truth has always been told as a collection of separate events and random aircraft that were carefully compressed into one neat conspiracy package,when in fact they were almost certainly unrelated.
Don't forget this is Boscombe Down where the abnormal is normally quite normal.

No, seriously, what Aurora. It never existed except as a budgetary line item that had nothing to do with a high speed craft.

The truth is a lot more mundane than what British spotters in the 90s would have liked it to have been.We can have our own Area 51 can't we,wasn't there even a Janet 737 there as part of the alleged conspiracy? Wiltshire is the least exciting place in the world,so occasionally the locals need to spice it up a bit with stories of mythological hypersonic spy planes.
