Triangular object over field in England on sunny day, 1997

My school was in the country and I was in class looking out the window. I saw a distinct traingular object that looked to be as far as the next village 3 miles away. It was over a field on a sunny day with partial cloud. It seemed to stay in the same position for about 5 minutes. My teacher took my attention from the window for about 30 seconds, when I looked back there were some clouds, once they had cleared the image was gone. After 2 minutes of observation I got my friend sitting next to me to look at it so I knew it wasn't just me seeing things. She saw it too.

Not sure if this is relevant, but it was near Thurleigh airbase,(Thurleigh, Bedford, Bedfordshire, England), which was used as a base for the American Air force during WWII
