The Bar / Re: Lowestoft Unknown Aircraft Sighting

We have cameras now with ridiculously high ISO. There is just no excuse not to take pictures of anomalous craft in the sky.

Most people are relying on the cameras in their phones, which are notoriously bad at low-light.

No, they have a lot of noise in low light but they'll still get a lot of details and an outline of "something" as opposed to absolutely nothing.

Apparently they had a passenger along, the CEO of Virgin Galactic (not Branson).

CORRECTION:  the passenger was Beth Moses the company astronaut instructor

How hard would it have been to make the beast supercruise?

I'd say it would definitely have potential in the lower end of supercruise. Engine is mostly optimised for high speeds, and is more of a leaky turbojet than a turbofan. Apparently a clean Mirage 2000 can just make it over Mach 1.0 in dry thrust. I'd say Mach 1.2 is the minimum to be able to claim useful "supercruise". Would probably require improved dry thrust from the M53?
