Hi Everyone, I hope you are all having a fantastic Christmas Day.
Earlier this morning at about 11.20 hrs GMT, I noticed a military aircraft flying over a friends house. By the time I managed to grab my phone to
video the aircraft I had traveled a fair distance away so I didn't get a brilliant shot.
I've zoomed in to the video and grabbed a few stills.
I think it may be a Boeing C-17 but the length of the vertical stabiliser appeared longer than the average C-17 that I've seen in photographs.
Now, even though my friend lives about 20 miles from Birmingham Airport (BHX), we don't often see any military types of vehicle around here plus I
have a flight app that identifies aircraft nearby but this vehicle did not show up.
I could have also sworn that this Aircraft was twin engined and at first I thought it looked like a spy play as I thought I saw a bulge on the top
but on checking the video, from the side view, it looks like I was mistaken.
I also filmed a few jets flying very close together a few weeks ago, 4 in total but I only managed to film two of them.
I've added the video here too just for those who may be interested.
Can anyone confirm if this looks like a C-17?
In fact I'll add the jet video shortly via you tube.
