Location of Sighting: Bingley ,West Yorkshire
Date of Sighting: Saturday 14th August 2010
Time: approx 9.45 pm
Witness Name: Dave
Witness Statement: My wife called me to look at group of bright lights in the sky moving towards us .They were clearly visible from inside house ,but we went outside to look. 3 orange lights , 2 at the front 1 behind from N.W [Skipton ] direction–they flew towards.us then all turned towards south [ Halifax ]. I am interested in planes ,but there was no engine noise or aircraft type strobe / different lights. We both thought they could be helicopters to start with, but there was no such noise .Couldnt see outline /shape only lights .
We went round front of house to look again and approx 2 minutes later 2 more objects flew overhead following same path .
I phoned Leeds/bradford airport 15 minutes later to report and they said they had already had e-mails about them.
I am sure they weren,t lanterns or similar ,but did consider small RAF trainer group or aerobatic group returning from event. The first 3 were difinitely in formation.
I thought I could hear very low hum but my wife said it was traffic noise .
I think the unusual points were the lack of all expected aircraft features- no strobe lights , no noise ,the formation [ the front 2 could have almost been joined [ would have made enormous ‘wing’ .]
