Triangular formation of lights over North London , England

walking home from the bar i work in, this is in a suburb called East Barnet , north of London . saw a triangular formation of seven lights in the sky , a perfect formation, slight traffic, so i cant determine any sound, at first i thought this was a 747 passener plane, then as i was walking a row of housesw obstructed my view, i then thought , if tha was a 747 it would need a light on the nose, one on each engine and one on each tip of the wings! as far as i know, 747 planes do not have this lighting array. I quickened pace to the end of the houses to watch it further, but it had gone. PLease note i tought it was a 747 by the chape of the array, however, a smaller passenger liner an airbus flew into view and seemed much lower, and dissapeared into the cloud cover, this means what ever the aircraft, it could not have been the size of a 747 at that altitude. For reference the craft/s were traveling ENE'wards over WHETSTONE TOWARDS ENFIELD (north london suburbs )
