G-force test over Yeovil by a Yeovilton-based jet

Amazing sight over the office in Yeovil on Tuesday. A fast jet, presumably a Harrier or Hawk out of Yeovilton, painted this Cumberland sausage of a contrail while performing a G-force test. The test started from the outside and got tighter as it went. The received wisdom is it was a trainee pilot being tested, not the plane.

Whatever the result was something to admire and the contrail remained visible for many minutes.

Now if that jet had completed matters with a low pass to shoot up the seagulls on our roof the whole day would have been perfect. Our resident poo hawks manage to bomb my car with an accuracy that would be the envy of any air force.
