MILITARY JETS FLYING OVER NASHVILLE AT NIGHT

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN, NOT SURE OF THE PRECISE TIMES...SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 7:45-8:45. I DIDN’T CHECK THE TIMES.

FIRST EVENT: SOMETIME JUST BEFORE 8 PM CST. HEARD A VERY LOUD AIRCRAFT SOUND COMING TOWARDS THE NEIGHBORHOOD COULDN’T REALLY TELL FROM WHAT DIRECTION. IT SOUNDED LIKE A PLANE WAS GOING TO LAND IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, AS IT GOT CLOSER I COULD SENSE IT WAS GOING VERY FAST AND THEN WAS FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER VERY LOUD JET GOING EQUALLY FAST. BY THE TIME I LOOKED OUTSIDE THEY WERE GONE, BUT THE SOUND PUT IT GOING OVER NASHVILLE TOWARDS THE WEST.

SECOND EVENT: SOMETIME AROUND 8:45 PM, I HEARD THE SOUND AGAIN IN THE DISTANCE. COMING FROM THE EAST. THIS TIME I WENT OUT INTO THE YARD, HEARD 2 JETS ONCE AGAIN PASSING OVERHEAD, VERY LOUD, AND VERY FAST, JUST ABOVE (100 FT? PROBABLY MORE) CLOUD COVER SO I COULD NOT SEE THEM AS THEY FLEW OVERHEAD BUT FOLLOWED THE SOUND TO THE WEST -SOUTHWEST. I SAW 2 SETS OF RED “TAIL LIGHTS”. MY NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE STREET ALSO HEARD THEM, AND MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR HAD ALSO COME OUT TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON AND WE CHATTED ON HOW WEIRD IT WAS THAT THE MILITARY WERE FLYING JETS OVER A MAJOR METRO AREA AT NIGHT. THERE WAS ALSO A COUPLE GETTING INTO THEIR CAR FROM A GET TOGETHER ACROSS THE STREET THAT STOOD AND WATCHED ALSO. I HAVEN’T SPOKEN WITH ALL MY DIRECT NEIGHBORS YET THOUGH I AM SURE THEY HEARD IT AS YOU COULDN’T MISS IT.

BOTH EVENTS LASTED LESS THAN 60 SECONDS EACH.

I LIVE IN AN APARTMENT, I AM A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIC LANDSCAPE GARDENER, MY NEIGHBOR IN THE APARTMENT NEXT DOOR IS A WAITRESS, MY NEIGHBORS ACROSS THE STREET ARE BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS.
