Heard at least 2 low flying jets.

I was at my desk at home at approximately 9:30PM on the night of Sept 1,1999. Suddenly I was abruptly aware that at least two low flying jets with their after burners loudly running, were over my house. I live in the "West Slope" (on maps) district of (East) Beaverton Oregon new city limits, but I still have a Portland mailing addess. They sounded like they were headed in a southerly direction. When things are that low you can tell. I know the sound of commerical jets high in the sky, since the home is on the North-South flight path. I thought this was strange, but didn't put it together until 10:07PM when Art Bell on Coast To Coast announced a breaking news story of a UFO sighting in Southern Oregon around 9:30PM. I'm an 18 year radio broadcast veteran.
