Could have been BA497 which seems to have followed the ops described flightpath and also seemed a little low over the Esher area.

FR24 also shows a positive climb rate at that time.

If the noise was from the Red Arrows and not the BA479, I can add that after several flypasts of central London over the last 10 years by the Red Arrows, when heading elsewhere 'South' they have stayed in formation and headed over Wimbledon/Kingston/Esher etc. This could be confirmed if you knew if they performed at any other displays yesterday in the South of England.

The Reds did indeed position to Hurn direct from the Royal Flypast, later performing flypasts at Lee-on-Solent and Portsmouth.

Interesting enough as the post may be (to some) I'm puzzled as to what it's doing here in R&N? Surely, this is more for the spotter forum? All very confusing for those of us who try to abide by the rules.
