Better than that, I saw them. Two of them, very low, just sailed over my head. RAF ones I would assume.

Yes, it was over Fulwood at about 11am as well (I suspect at the speed it was going it probably crossed most of Sheffield within 30s or less !). I had a quick look on FlightRadar but didn't see anything, then again  I don't think most military activity is recorded on there. From the glimpse I got out of the back window in the blink of an eye, it appeared to be flying from the north west in a south easterly direction.

F35s doing a flypast over the Mi Amigo site for the 80th anniversary. Saw one of them over Dore, I assume after the flypast

UK doesn't have (iirc) any twin tail fighters. 

 

Taken in S2 by me.

Passed over my house in Woodhouse, so low I thought they were dropping in for a cup of tea. Fabulous to see.

They were US ones (the Mi Amigo was a US aircraft and crew).

USAF as stated but the RAF does also have the F35s
