Agreed, there is absolutely no way they'd test anything secret at Farnborough, it's surrounded by homes and shops. You would clearly be able to see a plane taking off at night, the end of the runway is next to a busy junction with many street lights.

I have however seen fighters take off from there at night though with full afterburners. That's quite unusual as the airshow was not on at the time. It was a nice sight though.

I've explored the woods around the MOD area in Hampshire and the only thing remotely aircraft related was an old runway used during the second world war.
