Botley, Southampton - 2000-2001?

I have been racking my brains since seeing something I cannot explain going over my old house in Botley, Southampton, I have moved and broke up with my wife since and my diaries with dates etc. have gone.

But I think it was about Aug-Sept 2000 or 2001, I will try and get a firmer date after speaking to my ex-wife and see if she remembers when it was.

It was emitting a hum as it went over our house at a height of about 250-300 ft., it was also about 200 ft wide and about 600 ft in length, I could tell this by the fact it was blocking out stars in the sky.

It was at a weird angle to me so it looked like a giant Nike tic in the sky. It caused a vibration through the house as it went over, but it was near silent but for this low frequency hum noise.

It was huge, it also had 3 red lights that I could see with a 4th blinking in and out, and it was the lights that seemed weird as they were not normal aircraft lights and had an orange-red glow and were pretty big.

On the eve I even called Southampton air traffic control and they said they had no aircraft in my area at that time, especially that low. I also phoned my in-laws who lived round the corner and they had witnessed this low hum and vibration too, but didnít go out to see what it was.

I used to live in an area where we had regular Flybe flights go over our house, and I know what a plane looks like in the dark, but this was not a plane.

My dad is ex-military so I know about Chinooks and helicopters, Iíve also been to airshows so have seen a lot of military aircraft and civilian aircraft.

Hope to hear from you soon.
