Very low noisy aircraft
« on: April 02, 2019, 01:32:05 AM »
Does anyone know what the low flying noisy aircraft was over Ballymena around 1am tonight?

Much lower than any other aircraft, sounding like a rough running lorry, not at all like the police helicopters and made 2 passes in rapid succession on the approximate heading of BFS runway 17?

Only able to spot rear white light.

Nothing on FlightRadar

Puzzled and slightly worried but did not hear any impact.
