How to improve lighting in night time photography

I have a canon eos 7d and would rank myself as a rank novice.  Sort of stumbling my way through things but would love to be able to night time photography.  Even though I manually turned on the flash for the shot below, it was still very dark.  Is there something I can do to improve this or is it just a case of my camera's limitations?  Thanks.

F/3.5

Exposure 1/250 sec

ISO 3200

Focal length 18mm

o take better night time shots.  I took the shot below in the early hours, and even though I manually turned on the flash, it still seems to lack the lighting.   Also, I get military jets flying over quite a lot and wondered if it was possible to enhance the underside of the plane, rather than it being a dark shadow?   Is there something I can do or is it just down to the camera's limitations?  Thanks.
