Anyone Hear Low Flying Jet Engines at Full Power Tonight?
Original post made by Midtown Man, Midtown, on Sep 6, 2013
Lasted 30-45 seconds, very low and close. Lowest I have ever felt a Jet over my house. I ran outside. Time: 6:40 tonight (Friday). Area: Midtown. I thought we were all going to get one (a crash). I ran outside and could not see it, but I have never heard a jet so close! Scary. Didn't sound like a Moffett Field jet, more commercial and big and lumbering full blast to get aloft, to get some height.
Just an hour before, I was in the back yard, and two otherjets, one small and fast going to SF ybe a commuter from LA , and another,
big jumbo size, slowly turning towards SF over PA, both seemed to be at the same elevation or nearly so. I wondered if the air traffic
controllers started a weekend shift short handed. They didn't look well-placed. Just imagine.
