Eyewitness Victoria Logan said: “I have just witnessed something awful. 

“It was a sort of bomber plane which seemed to be in trouble. It flew over our house so low it seemed to be crashing.”

“I saw the plane tilt to miss a restaurant in Armthorpe and it continued to go into the distance but I'm worried it crashed? The sound hurt my ears!”

Many witnesses claimed to have seen a dark-coloured Second World War aircraft gliding silently towards the ground before disappearing from view in the East Midlands.

Some even claimed it might be the apparition of a Second World War Douglas Dakota that crashed more than 70 years ago.

The sightings even made news in America with YouTube conspiracy theorist Tyler Glockner speculating that the object nosedived to the ground, before “disappearing”.

But the RAF was forced to rubbish the claims and explain what was really going on – saying that the sightings were part of a military exercise.

And there could be an explanation behind Saturday’s sighting in Doncaster.

Britain’s only remaining flying Lancaster bomber, which is stationed at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, was flying its last sorties of the season at the weekend, with flypasts taking in RAF Duxford in Cambridgeshire.

Several people in Doncaster spotted reported seeing the plane flying over the area on Saturday afternoon with the plane landing safely shortly afterwards.
