I have seen this plane... it is not a hercules.. it is an old ww2 plane.. it was in feb 2012 on a monday morning when i heard what i thought was a
chinook in the distance as they fly over my house a lot.. but then the rumble got louder and louder until from behind some trees a couple of hundred
metres away it came banking heavily and heading straight for me.. i froze and could only stare as it straightened up, and was so low and close to my
balcony i could see the terrible paintwork.. it looked like it had been painted with a yard brush.. i also saw the pilot.
This happened in the dee valley heading to llangollen. Since seeing this old plane i have looked at every possible plane it could have been.. and it
could only have been a lancaster or variant.. or a b24 liberator.. it had lots of tiny windows right on the nse of the plane that is a gunners
station. No markings whatsoever, and looked like it had just come from a plane graveyard..
the raf insisted that none if their planes were in the area on that day.. and besides they are all marked..
i know this is an old post.. but ive only just seen it and it sounded exactly like what i saw.
everyone i have spoken to has said it will have been a hercules c-130.. but they also fly over a lot and i am familiar wth them..
i would be interested to hear any other details anyone else has about this dangerously low flying plane...
