What The........ !!!!!

A few moments ago, a military jet rocketed over our house (we live about 15 miles from a military base) at low altitude and immense speed.

It frightened the living daylights out of me !

It has been ages since we have had planes flying so low and fast overhead. Usually they are slower and much higher; so  you can hear them approach for a while before you get a good look at them. Not this time !

Oh, I don't handle sudden happenings very well. There was an earth tremor in Manchester 2 or 3 years ago. Apparently, it was felt quite strongly in the city centre, but where we were, only 3 miles away, it took the form of a single, sudden, jolt with a loud bang, lasting a second - not the sort of ongoing thing that makes you think, "earthquake". We actually felt the house move and went out to investigate, wondering whether a car had hit the house, only we couldn't find any evidence of anything. There were no news reports of a bomb in city, which was our next worry. So I asked a few friends and someone linked me to a website that tracks these things and, surely enough, there had been a mild earthquake at just the time I felt the jolt.

It was really unsettling and I imagine the low-flier was as well. Perhaps it was just an RAF pilot having a bit of fun.
