If you search youtube for 'strange sounds' you'll end up on a little video-venture listening to a variety of clips, some similar and some not so. I'm not going to link to any of them, mainly as I'm not a believer; but if any sound like what you heard then I might change my mind.
* as in video-dubbing, or even the use of some sort of contraption to generate 'witness' accounts.

As for the You Tube vids, I doubt many (or any) of them are genuine. A discussion (with some adult language) can be found here: http://www.liveleak....5749&comments=1

Its unusual, if not unprecedented to have fighters over this area of london, what with the commercial flight paths around here, helos a plenty including chinooks, but jets not so much. Its a rare treat if you ask me.

A couple will be based at Northolt providing air cover for the games, and at least one night-time flight up the Thames estuary and over London caused quite a lot of consternation and quite a few UFO reports! I think this may have been discussed in a previous UKww thread.
I always look for a rational explanation, but there are plenty of sonic boom-type reports and other odd noises heard around the world for which one hasn't yet been found.

Yes, dependant upon atmospheric conditions. On a still clear day here last week a Tornado flew over, I measured how long I could hear the rumble for, it was 8 minutes at around the same sort of tone/loudness... and that was from it flying overhead... if it had been a few miles to south and heading east to west it could eb longer.
And on still days I can here the rumble of the F15's above the loop - and that is a good 60 or 70 miles away.

I remember one evening several years ago where I heard persistent jet noises so I went out to investigate. An F15 appeared to be flying some kind of holding pattern at a medium altitude and this was held for about 5 mins or so before the aircraft broke this and flew off. It took a little while for me to spot the jet because of the altitude; so this kind of thing can be puzzling initially.
What really annoys me is the droning noise of some aircraft that come over here at night sometimes.
