Two questions:

1) Why were there RAF planes and helicopters circling offshore? This was 'Operation Chameleon'. There were several tankers feeding fuel to the attack aircraft during a training exercise.

See Photo 1 by Bob Fleet.  Click <<READ MORE>> below for photo 2. Three attack aircraft decided it was time to go home, having 'drunk their fill'.

2) Why were there RAF planes and helicopters circling us at night in early-March? Two planes have spent recent nights circling the Lothians, Fife, and the Firth of Forth, moving in very specific spirals until the early hours. Residents heard one Beechcraft and two helicopters coming and going til around 5am. They spent the night circling near Dunbar, North Berwick, and East Linton. This trio was involved in an intelligence gathering exercise.
