What was it ....?

I'm fascinated to know what flew over South West England this morning at around 10.30 am. There was quite a bit of high level fighter activity before hand then what appeared to be a Boeing 747 flanked by 3 more fighters. Sorry I'm no expert in plane spotting!! The planes were heading from East to West. My 1st guess was Airforce 1??

I am surprised no one has offered an answer yet.
It will almost certainly have been a KC 135 (military Boeing 707 converted to a tanker),
which from below looks exactly like a 747 (albeit half the size), and the 3 fighters will have been re-fuelling.
Have fun
