No conspiracy here (that I know of) but I was wondering if anyone in my area (I know there's a few of you here) had seen this and know what it
It was Monday 3rd September just after 6pm and I was driving back from a meeting along the A52 between Gamston and West Bridgford when I noticed a
large aircraft in the sky flying what appeared to be quite low. It caught my attention because it was different from the usual passenger airliners we
see all the time over the area. It seemed extremely big, dark and was flying very slowly. In the time It took me to get from Gamston to the Nottingham
Night Island, it had circled a couple of times and I then lost sight of it until I arrived in Beeston around 20 mins later when I caught a glimpse of
it in the distance between buildings.
For anyone who cares to check out the area on Google Maps, it looked as though it was circling around East Leake, Gotham and Keyworth although it's
difficult to judge the distance. East midlands airport is not far away but there are a few regular approach paths which I am familiar with and this
plane didn't follow them and it was too low to be in a holding pattern
I'm assuming it was military and I have never seen anything like this so wondered if any local members could enlighten me? Any non local members,
sorry but I can't provide much of a description as I was driving and couldn't look for too long at a time. I think it had 4 engines, It didn't
appear to have a radar 'mushroom' on the top and it didn't look the shape of a hercules.
