A RAF voyager escorted by two fighter jets has been spotted flying over Trafalgar Square with a fighter jet on either side as fascinated crowds watched on.

Crowds were seen looking up at the sky in photos posted to Twitter as the aircraft flew overhead.

Twitter users initially believed it was a British Airways passenger plane but the airline confirmed the plane did not belong to them.

Images have been shared to Twitter as a witness tweeted: "An airliner [sic] aeroplane has just flown LOW over Trafalgar Square flanked by fighter jets!!"

The plane, which bares a striking resemblance to a BA plane, was the RAF Voyager “Vespina” which was refurbished in 2020 to be used as transport for Government Ministers and the Royal Family.

According to the RAF website, the plane "proudly displays the Union Flag alongside RAF markings and is ready to represent the UK across the globe."
