Hello all.

Does anyone know what jets fly over Wellingborough? I work there and hear jets almost daily. Sywell is near by (we hear the Blades a lot) and Luton is to the south. I'm fairly sure it is not civilian traffic. I've lived up here 18 months and have never seen an airliner overflying the area.

I presume it is military traffic as they sound fast and the odd EH-101 (and UH-1) come along low level.

Thanks in advance.

Could be biz jet traffic departing Sywell as some of them seem to go pretty fast just after take off. Or it could be traffic out of Coventry perhaps?
