Riddle Of ‘Ghost Plane’ Over Derbyshire Is Solved – Derbyshire Live

Walkers spotted what they believed was a Lancaster bomber flying over Derbyshire and our newsroom has been flooded with reports of similar experiences since.

On Wednesday, Derbyshire Live ran a story about Christine and Robin, a married couple from South Derbyshire who witnessed the phenomenon of a vanishing war plane.

The couple came forward with their experience after reading a story on Derbyshire Live about the most haunted spots in the Peak District.

The plane seemed to have disappeared from sight above the pair, who spotted the plane back in August last year.

The silent, phantom flight stunned the couple and left those they told unsure how true the story could be.

Many readers have been in touch to say that over the last two decades, around Chatsworth and the Peak District, they too have witnessed the same kind of plane overhead.

Pam Brooks said: “I, too, saw this ‘ghost plane’ about 17 years ago when we were driving through the Chatsworth estate.

“It was at about top of tree height and partially obscured by the tops of the trees but it suddenly appeared at the side of me and actually made me duck in the car as it seemed so close and very real and then it was gone!

“My husband, unfortunately didn’t see it but was very startled when I ducked and said something like, Blimey, did you see that plane, it was so low and close! I’m not sure he believed me at the time but has since read reports such as yours and has been persuaded.”

However, some skeptics have also been in touch with their own theories and explanations as to what the couple may have seen.

According to a sky-scanner app, on the day of August 18 at 2:40pm a Hercules Lockheed C-130 RAF aircraft was flying nearby over Lincoln, and with top speeds of 592 km per hour it is likely this plane was flying over the stately home at the time Christine and Robin spotted it.

The Hercules are based at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire but routinely fly across the UK in training and routine missions.

In 2018, when other reports of a mysterious “ghost plane” emerged, the RAF confirmed that it was a Hercules that had been seen.

However, one reader got in touch with an interesting theory of what might have been spotted in the sky.

A Vickers Wellington crashed while attempting to force land on the June 11, 1943 at Chatsworth Park while on a day training flight from Cottesmore.

The Vickers Wellington was a twin-engined long range medium bomber that were designed in 1930 and used in World War II.

So maybe it WAS a ghost plane, just not a Lancaster Bomber.
