Aha, so it was the Lanc! i wasn't sure as it was in the distance.

I saw a quite large biplane heading that way as well, about 30 minutes earlier?

Pickle button. n. - the small button (usually red) on the control column of a fighter jet which when pressed, launches missiles. So called because missiles resemble the shape of a pickle (gherkin).
