3 strong lights that faded out when approached by fighter jets

Information from a good friend who passed this info to me in confidence.

My friends are in a band and were driving back from a gig and stopped the van to go to toilet just before 6am just north of the town of Cashel near Thurles, Ireland. Whilst going to toilet they looked up to see 3 large bright lights, too bright and low to be stars. The lights were independent and lined up on top of each other with the top light slightly off to one side. Suddenly fighter planes began approaching the lights from three different directions and at this point the middle light began to flash very quickly blinking on/off. All three lights simply faded out by the time the planes had reached the point in the sky where they were located.
