Pilot's acrobatics captured on film

JUST like the other Lord of the Rings, this was a truly award-
winning performance.

Families across south Norfolk and Suffolk looking up at the
clear skies yesterday evening would have caught a glimpse of
this splendid circle.

Maybe it could have been mistaken for a UFO or another eerie
apparition, but the roar of the jet engines above gave the game
away that this was a pilot embarking on some high-level

It took the pilot several attempts to create the perfect circle.
On the first few occasions one side of the vapour trail forming
the shape would fade away before the other had been successfully

The circle could be clearly seen in the skies above Norwich, but
rail commuters standing out on the platform at Ipswich station
and families in Framsden, near Woodbridge, Suffolk, also caught
a glimpse.

A number of photographers contacted the Evening News's offices
in Rouen Road to let us know about this amazing picture.

Mike Easton, took a picture from his garden at Danesbower Close,

He said: "I looked out of my window and saw this amazing shape
in the sky, which looked like it had been created by a fighter
jet, and decided to take a few pictures of it. The circular
shape was pretty impressive."

But who created the circle? A spokeswoman for RAF Marham today
said it could have been one of their pilots.

"We did have aircraft airborne over that area doing operations
and they could have made circles like that," she said. "But we
can't say for definite because we don't know if RAF Coltishall
were flying at the same time as well."

No-one from RAF Coltishall was available for comment.
