No mistaking that sound. They were about a half hour apart. No known squadron north of me. I have seen in the past 2 in formation when Obama was in
the area. That's about it. they Could have been along the coastline more but definitely headed south. Not a common around here at all.
Are you near the gas pipeline? I believe somerville is not far from it because I know it goes through South Liberty. Probably they had to bleed off
the line. 3000 psi coming out of a 2ft diameter pipe tends to get LOUD.
I am near the pipeline but this wasn't even close to a ground level sound. My step father has been around aviation his whole life and I have been
around it enough to know what we heard. Definitely was not a private or passenger liner...
Oh there are a number of things buzzing around right now. First sighting of one flying near Flint heading to the east coast, these two, one of the
two that we've been discussing is flying operational missions heading East, the other one came home early and has to head back out.... So keep a
camera handy, and keep looking up.
It was back around the start of August IIRC. They tried to do a dog and pony show out west with it, and it fell through, so they took it east, and
someone happened to be in the right place at the right time.
