Location of Sighting: Kingston upon Thames
Date of Sighting: 26th September 2013
Time: 8pm ish
Witness Name: Alex
Witness Statement: My cousin, her husband and I went outside into the balcony for a smoke after dinner. We were looking at the Thames from the balcony. Then I noticed a 2 engine passenger jet heading west. I’m quite interested in planes so I generally look up when I hear one. I could see its lights, and it’s port and starboard lights. There was some cloud but not enough to obscure the plane. Then flying right under it heading north west ish, at a slightly faster speed was a V shape formation of lights. What first struck me was that there was an odd number of lights on each side. On the left there were 4 or 5 and the right 2 or 3. Next thing that struck me was that’s flying flipping close to the passenger jet above. They looked way too close and to begin with were almost on the same course. The lights were white and fairly bright. For the 5 or 6 seconds I saw it, it was very clear before it disappeared with clouds obscuring it. They didn’t seem to be independent, more fixed to something. All I could make out was a dark leading edge. Surely if it was an aircraft all the lights would have been working. Especially in that busy airspace. The 3 of us saw it and weren’t to fussed at the time. But I can’t think of any aircraft that have such a strong V shape with lights dotted along the leading edge of it’s wings.
