Thats pretty crazy. Have you researched if there were any drills taking place in your area? Thats the only reason they should be flying like that. The only time I have seen what you are describing is when they were drilling and on 911 when the fighter jets were flying over our city to NYC. Keep us posted. I am interested in whats going on.

I live in Lancashire too.

I've not seen anything unusual though to be honest.

I've recorded the sound of 20 helicopters over our house, I'll upload the audio for you when it's been transferred from reel - reel to dvd.

Unusual. Check papers or tele, perhaps. It could just be a drill delay or perhaps a relcation. THat, or it could be much more sinister.

I live in Nottingham, UK and weekend of 17-19/10/08 was up walking in the Lake District with pals. There was an unusual amount of low level flying going on; namely the Tornado GR7 (I think), and when I asked a few locals in Keswick (where we were staying) they said it was unusual to have so many going past, particularly on the Friday. I counted 5 low level fly-bys myself. Not entirely conclusive enough for me to say it's ''odd'' as such. But, yes, to answer your question, I did notice a lot of fighter aircraft activity that weekend.

I'm former RAF myself, and have understood that sorties happen randomly and are sometimes not subject to any schedule as such. It was a little perculiar though.
