    Any more information? Size? Speed? Prop or jet? Direction?

    My guess is that it will have something to do with the LAA Rally at Sywell this weekend - some odd, continental homebuilt and his ami.

      Hi Moggs,
      No nothing, very vague, but the chap said they were very fast but quiet, I thought Typhoon but he said no, and black! very strange. UFO maybe ?

        Twas possibly the Verhees Delta that appeared at the Rally in 2011. ( See Google).

          I did hear "Arco formation" call up Southend. Didnt see them though.
          They were west of Southend when they called. Dont know what the
          Formation was comprised of.

              I think Mally is right. I saw the delta over Herts on Sunday afternoon in formation with what might have been a Banbi. Strangely I didn't see it at the LAA Rally on Friday although it might have arrived after I left.

                It definitely got there. There's plenty of Sywell 2014 images of it if you Google Image
