Ok the story goes today i was out with my gf on our bikes on a very long ride when we both heard a very loud noise of a jet coming so we stopped and looked around becouse from the noise it sounded very very low something that doesnt happen were i live through aircraft altitude restrictions there not even supposed to come through were i live as its next to a wildlife preserve, anyway ive never seen this type of aircraft before it was completely triangular i thought it was a vulcan high altitude long range bomber but they have a cone nose and this was perfectly triangular and when it banked to the left we both noticed it was dark black but not any type of stealth bomber it kinda reminded me of the f-22 when i noticed the afterburners accept there was 4 and very big ...we also noticed how slow it was going we have both never watched a jet go so slow it was kinda strange with the noise coming off the thing it baffled us it circled our village 2 times very slowly so we had a good look at it just wished i had my camera it would be easier to explain or identify.

The only thing i can think it could be is a prototype of some new bomber/fighter or something american ive never seen before

Maybe try some punctuation? It will make your post easier to read and get more responses.

Was there an air show nearby?

Air Force B-1Bs are hitting the air show circuit pretty hard this year. Fits the description a bit: Pointed nose, triangular shape, four engines.

Here is a video of one from the Thunder Over Michigan show last weekend.

we are not all as perfect as you.

We, are not all as perfect as you are.

We, aren't as perfect as you.

We're not, all as perfect as you are.



Any of the sentences right?

Look up a F-117 Nighthawk and see if that looks somewhat like it. Also check out the boeing xb-70 buzzard, if you can find any pictures of it.

Nope sorry were i live is in the middle of noware and the only aiir shows they have in my area are remote controll lol, thanks for the video id love to say that it was a B-1B lancer but its so diffirent in many ways it looked like the entire jet was made from 1 single triangle with 4 jets strapped on its back im still looking on google trying to find something that looks asmuch like it as possible but all i can find that remotely looks like it is the vulcan.

Ah, didn't know you were in Great Britain until you said it was 0230 local time in your parts. Could it have been a Eurofighter Typhoon? While it only has two engines, external fuel pods could have been mistaken for engines.

The colour is exactly like the nighthawk that is exactly what i thought it was when i was looking at it but then i noticed the area at the back was completely streight there was no area that looked like the wings on the back of the nighthawk also when it banked to the left the cockpit looked more rounded and it had (sorry for lack of proper word ive got no idea what they are called but i will try and describe them) those bits of metal you see at certian parts of the aircraft i think give aerodynamics sorry ill try and findout what they are and get back to you. the xb-70 is very very close i actualy thought it was a concord at first glance then with it being black and concord being out of service i thought it was the nighthawk but the xb-70 is very close the only biggest thing that puts me off the idea of it being this aircraft is the entire thing was triangular from nose to tail it was the whole thing

Nope we see them quite often in my parts as im close to the coast, i know the typhoon is big but compared to the one i was watching today it was a dwarf this is why im baffled ive been looking on google most of the day trying to findout what it was but im having no luck at all theres been a few close matching ones but nothing spot on

Too bad. I really would have thought that was it. Fits the description you gave of it banking. It has the same rounded cockpit and "those bits of metal you see at certian parts of the aircraft i think give aerodynamics," which are called canards.

The F-117 has been out of service for a few years. The only remaining XB-70, which has been out of service since the late 60s, is on display at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH.

Though, I must point out a discrepancy in your story. In your original post you stated that "the noise it sounded very very low something that doesnt happen were i live through aircraft altitude restrictions there not even supposed to come through were i live as its next to a wildlife preserve." In the post I have referenced in this posting, you state that "we see them quite often in my parts."

So you don't see aircraft often, but you do see Typhoon's often? Would you be able to clarify?

Of course i live around 30 miles away from a airport called robin hood there is restrictions on there altitude they are not allowed to come low enough to scare the wildlife but on some occasions the military fly typhoons or harriers through to do military exercise out at sea wich are pretty low but i dont think they care becouse they come and go in seconds but the passanger airlines would take quite a while having to circle us over and over slowly like they used to do it was pretty annoying untill they made the restrictions this is why the aircraft is bugging me becouse it wasnt a passanger airline i had a clear look at it and it looked 1-2 manned tops with the side of the cockpit and its way bigger and was going WAY slower than any military jet ive ever seen

There is an airshow in Sunderland this weekend. Chances are that it was the Avro Vulcan, as it is confirmed to be there this weekend.

sorry to be the fact police, Boeing did not design the xb-70 North American Aviation did. and there were only 2 built and 1 was lost in a horrific clash and the other sits at the Wright-Patterson AFB, so unless they took it out of retirement i doubt that was it.
sorry again

hmmm sunderland is over 130 miles away from me but then again it is a long range bomber, its plausable but the design of it was diffirent imagine planting a jet on a triangle and the tip of the triangle being the nose of the aircraft with no gaps im having a hard time describing it wish i had my camera would of been hell of alot easier

I'm still banking on it being the Avro Vulcan. This schematic is similar to your drawing. Perhaps you didn't get as good of a look as you thought.


The distance from you to Sunderland, 130 miles, could be covered in about thirty minutes at 250 knots. Also, I'm sure flying along the coast would have just been a scenic route for the pilot to take. Or, perhaps it was a part of a photo op.

Another interesting fact: As of March of this year Robin Hood airport is the new home of the Avro Vulcan.

+1.

I came in here hoping to read and contribute, but seriously, the block text and lack of punctuation and capitalisation hurt my brain too much! So... go easy!
