Witness Statement:At 3pm today I was travelling north from the throckley area in Newcastle when me and my passenger noticed probably in Northumberland (otterburn) what looked like a jet traveling vertical dead plum it went very quickly till about the height you see trans Atlantic flights I guess about 30-40k feet turned horizontal
Then east towards Newcastle and travelled faster across the sky than anything I’ve seen! Not a commercial flight!! Though it looked man made it flew like a shooting star it also had a constant trail from the rear but extremely quick?
I’ve tweeted RAF Boulmer but heard nothing yet

    Not sure if it’s coincidence but an AWAK plane (with the radar on the top) has been spotted over the last couple of days here in Northumberland. People are commenting it is really very low and slow, as if looking for something. I thought this type of plane only flew very high.

  2. AWACs often fly the circuit around Newcastle.

  3. Last night (11pm ish) traveling on A68 near Otterburn saw 2 lights over the hills thought it must be couple of planes but they did not move then red fire balls were shot up towards the lights, look like fire works but no bang just disappeared, then another 3 lights appeared and all lights disappeared there after, did not catch most of the action but did get bit but on phone video it just looks like lights over the hills. This was like nothing I have ever seen.
