Mys­tery air­craft fly over city cen­tre

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

AN un­usual sight was spot­ted in the sky over Peter­bor­ough as four mys­tery flew low over the city cen­tre.

Shop­pers stopped to stare up at the four air­craft and were deaf­ened by the noise of en­gines as the planes passed over­head.

Lo­cal air­craft en­thu­si­asts say they be­lieve two of the planes were Do­minie air­craft and the other two were King Air B200 planes.

The only RAF base which cur­rently op­er­ates such air­craft is RAF Cran­well, in Lin­colnshire, where Nos 55 (R) and 45 (R) squadrons use them as part of the train­ing air­craft fleet.

con­tacted the RAF base yes­ter­day, but no­body was avail­able to com­ment on whether ex­er­cises were be­ing car­ried out or what the four planes were do­ing fly­ing over the city.

FOR­MA­TION: The air­craft fly­ing in for­ma­tion over the city cen­tre yes­ter­day lunchtime. (METP-24-06-10RH121)
