|Low flying military aircraft seen in the area which is out of the ordinary.
On Sunday July 4th 2010 about 19:30 I was inside my home and heard military sounding jets flying rather low around the area. I went outside and saw 2 what appeared to be F-15’s, due to the dual vertical stabilizers on the tail, flying at a rather low altitude. They made two rather large circular passes at (not more than a few thousand feet up) and then proceeded in a south westerly direction.
I also saw a C-17 flying a couple hundred feet level over the old Norton Air Force Base at the same time. I lost sight of both aircraft (C-17 and F15’s) due to the trees near my home. This lasted maybe 5 minutes in total.
I am born and raised in this community and have not seen anything like this since the Air Force Base was an active military facility some 15 years ago or more.
