There's a large military presence in that area. It could be a P-3 out of Jacksonville, or a T-45 on a test hop, or several other military types that fly out of that area.

The aircraft he saw was moving at 134 knots. That would point to a powered aircraft, not a balloon.

There's another plane flying the same route. No call sign 1400ft 300 knots this time. Looks like it's heading back to America. 62,000ft and 400+ knots.

As the OP that screenshot I just put up was taken 7 minutes ago

Have to see how fast it gets to altitude.

6-8 minutes going off flight radar I got a few screenshots

Its still over that area as of 20:15 this time there is a call sign though.
edit on 19-6-2017 by Woody510 because: Extra information


The altitude readings must be a glitch surely?

Is it possible that the craft in question caught a really fast jet stream? I know when I have flown private we would sometimes catch a fast East and West jet stream that would cut down on the travel time..

The Boeing 777-200 jet reached a ground speed of 745mph as it rode winds of more than 200mph across the Atlantic. At ground level, the speed of sound is 761mph.

Can you supply any reason as to why this particular location is being used?

No, when I saw it, they were going in a straight line heading northwest. If they had caught a wind, they'd be going east.

Access to the ocean without having to pass through the busiest parts of the airspace. If it's a UAV they have all kinds of special provisions in place to fly in busy airspace.

Most airliners etc fly at about 40 to 50,000ft dont they?62,000ft and 400+ knots seems out of the ordinary.

No, more like 36-39,000 with occasional jumps to about 41,000.

What's with the altitude going up and down to the extreme in the screenshot I put up?

Might be the receivers in the area. These sites rely on people building and running ground stations out of their homes. That's why I thought it was a data glitch at first. They fly into a hole between receivers, or out of coverage of a receiver and the data goes weird for a few seconds.

Ah right I was sure how they got all the info on the planes. I could only find it on flightradar though. Do you still think it's a drone of some sort?

The data is from the plane, but it needs a receiver connected to the Web to let us see it through the site that's tracking them.

The altitude they were at the other day when I saw it is right about the altitude that the Global Hawk/Triton flies at.

I don't just see triangles, sorry about that....I was being too brief in the details....

I see B2 cousins too.....they're not a B2 exactly....up there at 62,000 MSL....

They have the same points on the trailing edge but more symmetrical, so the wing has no high aspect tip sections

Cousin....to the B2....slick as hail looking....slips so fast going by ( no lights ).....to expound a little I use a johnny seven oma super duper triple snooper gen 3
edit on 19-6-2017 by GBP/JPY because: Gen 3 starlight that is.....a PVS14

Hi Woody,

Skyray, once the name of a US navy high altitude interceptor....read in to that what you will! :-)

Cheers
Robbie

That was an F4D if I remember rightly. I'm sort of going with Zaph that it's a naval drone being tested especially with it being in Plymouth.
