That's what I thought. That's why I suggested the B-1 it fits the size difference that was described.

Can't edit my original post, was thinking of Boscombe Down in regards to the runways, Lakenheath only has 1.

To follow up on the exhaust discussion, I can't think of anything with squared nozzles that are fairly wide apart. As stated within the this thread, the F-22, F-117, & YF-23 utilize this shape in some capacity, but the nozzles are fairly close together and neither of those aircraft are really larger than the F-15.

Wouldn't be a Concorde or B-1 because you would definitely know it lol...

It's certainly possible for an aircraft to be escorted in close formation to drown out sound or visuals. Other than nosy neighbors, the Chinese & Russians are always watching.

It is possible for an escort to happen. 3’000 ft is not drowning out noise or visuals.

Also, a straight in isn’t 3’000 ft at 25miles.

Honestly, if this was a black project, Lakenheath is probably one of the last places they would take it. Too many people watch the base too regularly, and there is a big population around it. They'd want to go somewhere less crowded, where they could immediately secure it.

It's a little like the " weird California sighting " on another thread.

Are you trying to say they used a scaled up version of the YF-23 as a medium bomber?

We don't currently have a "medium bomber". But all the evidence is that the YF-23 died on the vine. If it did exist though, the fins would be angled significantly, so it wouldn't fit the description.

A B1 was my thought too actually.

Might be a bit too big though?

There also weren't any reports of them there. I follow a couple Lakenheath groups, and they would have been all over anything unusual like a B-1 being there.

Wishfull dreaming on my part. As Zaph said, the OP described nearly vertical tail fins and they were basically a "V" on the 23.

Agreed, 3,000ft @ 25 is a little bizarre

The F-22 nozzles are rectangular.


Right you are. Thanks

Still a mystery then .. I'm calling the OP a liar as to what they saw but even a F-22 wouldn't go unnoticed at Lakenheath or Mildenhall. Like Zaph said so many spotters physically watching the base and others using tracking websites it would of been noticed. Maybe a F22 had a mechanical issue and it was being escorted to check in the aircraft in flight but then again I'm no professional spotter but I try my best to keep up with things, I'm unaware of any F22s operating in the UK right now

Also if the exhausts were glowing would this not imply that said aircraft would of had its afterburner on, if it was being escorted the escort aircraft too would have to light their burners just to keep up with the supposed escort aircraft

Just thinking, I appreciate a tanker is much larger than an F-15 and obviously doesn't have twin tail fins but would the window where the boom operator emit some light if it was open and there was a light on inside the aircraft causing it to look like a rectangular glow being seen ? Maybe two f-15s were information with a tanker and due to he low light conditions the OP sighting could of caused confusion with what they were seeing

May be we could trust the observer, and surely we don't know since decades what is realy in the USAF inventory, what is describe no way be a tanker. There is Rumor of things going white so its not impossible that some craft come to see the light and its time ,nothing on the ramp since the F-35.

I'm leaning more towards optical illusion. At night, when that dark, anything beyond large detail is going to be difficult and it's fairly easy to misjudge shape.

I trust the observer, my comments didn't mean to imply the OP was lying or pretending they saw something.

Oh I've just realised.. my first reply I've said I WAS calling the OP a liar .. I genuinely meant to type 'I'm NOT calling the OP a liar' my apologies at my mistake
