  1. Hi Andy,
    I have checked: (RAF Leeming section) and on the evening of the 24th October,there were F-15 fighters practice dogfighting in that area.
    That may well explain what you saw! -Paul

  2. Wow, this area is becoming a hot spot for UFO’s and fighter jets chasing or circling objects.

    Suggest you speak to RAF Leaming ATC or Tees Valley airport – a private contractor is based here providing fighter training.

  3. I was out walking my dog down the Scrambles (between Belmont & Sherburn) I heard the planes, as the report suggests it was very loud, I tried to locate the source, but cloud cover distorted my view. I thought it strange as we are on one of the flight paths in & out of Newcastle Airport, I thought it could have been a plane waiting for a landing slot, and so making another approach, but this didn’t sound like the usual passenger planes we get in the area, also the time scale it was going on for at least 25 minutes. Given the close proximity of flight paths and areas of dense population, I very much doubt military exercises would be authorised, unless for purposes of intercepting objects in our air space. Glad someone can shed a bit more light on the incident, it would be interesting to see the radar traces of the so-called exercise…
