Residents across County Armagh reported hearing – and seeing – low-flying jets zoom across the sky earlier today (Friday).

The jets were spotted in the Portadown and Tandragee areas and caused quite a stir with the speed and sound at which they travelled.

Residents across counties Tyrone and Down also spotted the RAF aircraft before they landed at Belfast International Airport.

A spokesperson for the Royal Air Force told Belfast Live that it was completing “routine low flying training” in Northern Ireland today.

“RAF Typhoons from 3 Squadron, RAF Coningsby are completing a land away and routine low flying training in Northern Ireland today,” the spokesperson said.

“The RAF use airports all over the country for training as they provide unusual & differing airspace and approach challenges, this ensures our crews remain ready and able to deploy on global operations.”
