Two low-flying jets whizzed over Armagh earlier this afternoon (Monday) causing quite the stir.

It’s the second time in a week this has happened, with many surprised at just how low they got.

Some suggestions that the ‘fighter jets’ are in place for the visits of Prime Minister Theresa May and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, who are in Belfast holding talks at Stormont in a bid to help end the political stalemate in Northern Ireland.

The high-profile political duo arrived at Stormont House before lunchtime.

However, it currently remains a mystery as to why they were flying above our heads..

Esther Iriwn tweeted: “What’s going on today in just heard fighter jets fly over it was like they were going hit our building.

Shirlie Murtagh tweeted: “Just had two fighter jets on a fly over Must be something important on today.”

The jets were spotted at different parts of Northern Ireland, even as far north as Dervock in Co Antrim.

And in Belfast..
