I live in Hull for my sins, and was wide awake last night and I heard the noise quite clearly. It was nothing unusual, other than the lateness, it
was the typical drone of a propeller driven plane. It went on an unusually long time, but other than that there was nothing different to the noise
you might hear any other day of a plane flying over.
The tone and pitch of the noise was very distinct from the Police Helicopter, which spends an inordinate amount of time hovering close to where we
live, so I would discount that as an option. Also Humberside Police have confirmed the helicopter was over the river flying around S#horpe at the
time (bet that town gets edited for me. A large town in North Lincolnshire famous for steel making, S____thorpe, use a c, n, t, and u rearranged to
get the place name.)
I'd also discount the Air Sea Rescue helicopter, the noise that makes t is very different to the noise last night.
My money would have gone on one of the Fokker 50 planes KLM use to fly between Aberdeen, Humberside, and Schipol airports to service the oil industry
executives and others, but the time of night was wrong, and the sound did seem to be coming from high up. That said KLM look like they've moved to
Fokker 70s since March, so maybe not one of theirs after all?
If it was between 1940 and 1943 I'd have put my money on the Luftwaffe as Hull was massively bombed then, few places in the UK suffered more than
Hull, but as it is in the North nobody remembers or seems to care. Maybe it was a ghost bomber?
If the noise happens again tonight I will run out and scour the sky and try and record the noise and put it on here for everyone to have a listen.
