Well the big giveaway would be that the Eurofighter Typhoon can't hover ;-)
It can do a slow pass with it's nose in the air, but not a true hover. It also doesn't have vertical take off capabilities like the F-35 Lightning.
Don't like that name by the way, there's only one plan that should bare the name lightning in my book....

Another consideration would deffo be the weather!

If its 20 miles, then I for one would not want to get caught out if the wind picks up from West, Sw, Southerly etc.

That would be bloody hard work trying to push back to Newhaven!

Northerlies are fine, as you could hug the coastline.

It may have been more of a slow pass than a hover come to think of it. Or maybe it was just a F-35 as you say .
