What I just noticed is you have to click the search button for Wolverley Street london again.
Here you go Armour For Victor Refreshed Link:

I have found a second picture taken only seconds after the picture in discussion.
I have highlighted in both pictures a person of reference and the formation of objects.
It gives an indication that the formation moved in a general SW heading coming from a NE bearing.
I would also go with a formation of planes rather than something "off worldly"

First picture we all have seen

Second picture only seconds afterwards

What you have found here icblue is very impressive work
and a good example of what some Members can come up with to further or conclude a discussion.

I understand your point, but google streetview won't be the medium behind it.

Apologies for swaying off topic

CHECK out the video

What is worse is I can't believe they were let get away with such intrusive filming. Shame on you citizens of the UK for not having this stopped.

sad, sad , sad, big brother

What a load of paranoid crock. Firstly, Goodle Street view is available in multiple countries, including the USA! Secondly, it is a set of images taken at different times stitched together from ages ago. Hardly useful in any kind of monitoring, is it? It just makes you look silly saying stuff like that.

The picture stitching and 360 degree nature of the pics also explains the distortions and oddness in the images. You can see some sort of image distortion on every street view image. This makes those claiming these are faked/shopped look silly.

As has been pointed out (several times) by other posters, these are clearly earthly planes flying a classic Red Arrow formation. I am especially surprised at infinite claiming they are spheres, when they clearly have a normal aircraft shape!

The only thing this thread proves is that you get a plethora of people pretending to be imaging experts showing themselves up and that alot of people don't bother to read a thread or apply some critical, logical thinking to their lives before posting utter nonsense.

Seen before - very curious!

Not clear enough for me to believe the 'fleet' theory though...

Well, just for arguments sake, regarding the blurring of the pictures from the top of the pole. Argument is, that it isn't plausible that they would "edit" a suspicious part of the image. Just an observation, every license-plate on every car has been blurred or "editted" so I would say it absolutely is plausible that google looks through every picture...

just an observation

Why even obsess over the idea that this is a hoax when there are several even more bizarre incidents filmed in Mexico and other parts of South America? One fleet was even witnessed by an entire battalion of Mexican police and a provincial governor during a banquet.

The incident involving the police and governor was at Xalapa, Mexico.

Guys, I think this is an April's fool's joke.

I saw the news and was going to post it, and then remembered the date....

Seriously, it's an April Fools joke, I guess if you're taking this seriously, then you'd also take this seriously:

You guys are a bunch of suckers

Except the picture was taken last year (someone confirmed the date) and has been on Google Streetview since it was released. This thread has been open for some time. I don't see what is so hard to understand that this is a pic of the Red Arrows. It actually makes more sense than either UFO's or a Hoax.

Oops, I had never seen this thread before, and assumed it was brand new, I didn't even look at the OP's date. I guess it is NOT an April Fools joke, apologies, I'll be more observant to dates next time. Anyhow, it looks like a flock of birds.

Airforce flies in different kinds of formations a lot. They actually practise it very much. As the objects are too far away to clarify their shape, my best best is still airforce. That formation is called half diamond, which indicates even further that way.

Meh . Damnit . Airplanes blocking up the sky. You know I wish all that fossil fuel burning bull would just get out of the freakin way. That would seal it. Ok we want to prove UFO arent anything else but that. Ground ALL the planes , helis and whatnot (except for emergancy medical ones) so we can have a proper butchers, and not put up with all this formation flying nonsense ... (OVER A CITY ?????WTF ??)

Huh? UFO's? What about an advert for sometining?

FFS - will people please read the ENTIRE thread before replying - the truth is in there

posted on Apr, 2 2009 @ 07:35 AM
it does indeed, so for those unwilling to read what's gone before, I shall cut and paste from one of the many other posts about these'

ight. here's how i worked out the date.

I followed the streetview car's route. I was looking for something to tie an approximate date, perhaps the news headline on a billboard or something in a pub advertising some football game fixture but, alas, all I could find was the Prince Caspain Chronicles of Narnia advert. it says, in cinemas June 20 something. you can see it here it's on the tower hamlets billboard thing outside the la Forchetta.

Now, having that bit of info, I headed over to ole google to see if any air displays took place in june 2008 knowing full well that streetview images take approximately 9 months or so to go live online (I asked one of their drivers). I found the youtube footage which has a date when it was shot, which clearly shows a series of fly-pasts. Then I headed back to google to search for air displays and the exact date to find the Air Scene UK site I mentioned above somewhere with the precise details of what took place that day. There's photos too of the practice runs from the days before somewhere. and all this within the time it took me to drink a cup of coffee. as for the whole tornados debacle i shall quote the page should folk be too lazy to look for themselves: The Queen's birthday and RAF 90th anniversary flypast went ahead in fine weather, the biggest flypast since the Jubilee in 2002. Element 1 was the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, with the Lancaster leading two Spitfires and two Hurricanes. The pilot of the Lancaster was Flight Lieutenant Mike Leckey, and one of the Spitfires was being flown by Group Captain Stuart Atha, Station Commander of RAF Coningsby and the Typhoon Force Commander. Element 2 consisted of a Hercules from RAF Lyneham, accompanied by two King Airs from 45(R) Squadron, based at the RAF College at Cranwell, the first time these aircraft have participated in the Queen’s birthday flypast. Element 3 was nine Typhoons, representing each of the four squadrons based at RAF Coningsby. The flypast leader was Wing Commander Johnny Stringer, Officer Commanding 29 (R) Squadron. Element 4 was led by a VC-10 from 101 Squadron flanked by two Tornado F3 fighter aircraft representing 43(F) and 111(F) Squadrons based at RAF Leuchars, closely followed by a Sentry AEW1 simulating in-flight refuelling. The Sentry was flown by Wg Cdr Stu Reid, better known as 'Bomber Leader' with the BBMF, training pilots to fly the Lancaster and the Dakota; this is his ninth season with the BBMF. Element 5 was a diamond-nine formation of Tornado F3s, led by Wg Cdr Peter Cracroft, OC of 111(F) Squadron. Element 6 (main pic): One of the RAF’s five C-17 Globemaster llls was flanked by two further Leuchars-based Tornado F3s. A sixth C-17 is expected to join the fleet imminently. Element 7 was a Nimrod MR2 from from 201 Squadron, RAF Kinloss, escorted by two more Tornado F3s from RAF Leuchars. Element 8: A Lockheed Tristar from 216 Squadron, based at RAF Brize Norton, was flanked by two BAe 125s from 32 (TheRoyal) Squadron, based at nearby RAF Northolt, Middlesex. Both types have served extensively in the Middle East, the Tristar refuelling other aircraft and transporting troops, and the 125s providing high speed transport for senior military personnel. Element 9: The final element was a sixteen-strong formation of Tornado GR4s representing all four of the squadrons based at RAF Marham. Among the formation was Air Commodore Phil Osborn, the Station Commander at RAF Marham until the previous day, and his successor, Gp Capt Colin Basnett

Billions of dollars have been spent on defense of our airspace and not a weapon appears to have been fired at these things.

How many people could a fleet of UFO's abduct?
- how many lives could they ruin? and how much mental illness can their mere presences cause?

*That these things were not immediately fired upon is a disgrace. The Chinese could very well have spycraft that are made to appear as a UFO so as to avoid being shot down by a nation who does not shoot down UFO's....

If I was to fly over London without a transponder or designated flight path - I'd be met with fighter Jets and I'd expect them to shoot me down.

This UFO fleet over London is indicative of an increasingly pathetic Armed Forces being incompetent and incapable of defending their own aerospace from attack or preventing enemy reconnaissance.

I hope someone's head goes on the chopping block for this one.

This fleet contained multiple targets and was well within range of basic anti-aircraft weaponry - which wasn't used...
