I concur, i’m from the fylde, for years myself and my brother in the summer watched them fly from our back garden at night. Small triangular craft,
You could hear warnings to other flights that uavs were operating in the area on a scanner.
Up at nearby rivington it became a bit of a joke about the testing of the black triangles over there. That would have been 93-96.
I seem to recall there was a near miss that was reported in the press involving a civilian airliner and a small black triangle late 90’s I think.
There have always been rumours of an emergency landing at Warton of something special from our American brothers, sf descended on to the scene quickly
and things were covered up, literally. Happened in the 90’s.
Also had a girlfriend from Elgin, who had a full complement of new double glazing from the mod due to a low flying ‘black thing’ that shattered
her previous ones. She reckoned it was a us plane as it was too big to be British apparently
