The BOAC airliner stayed at the same height, 19,000 feet, throughout the sighting, which might have kept it at the same elevation angle relative to a mirage layer.
Though the UFO's seemed to "pace" the BOAC airliner at the same relative direction throughout the sighting, in actuality they seemed to stay with the descending sun low over the horizon, which itself changed direction by about 5-7 degrees with respect to the airliner's course, i.e., moved to the right or north in direction.
If the UFO's had strictly stayed at exactly the same relative direction from the BOAC cruiser (about 300 degs true) then their separation angle from the sun of about 5 degrees would have doubled to about 10-12 degrees which might have been quite noticeable to the BOAC crew, but was evidently not.

The bulk of the tailings are concentrated inside the dredge channel and at the north and south estuaries.
