Around 8 PM PST while visiting the San Diego region tonight, I witnessed an unfamiliar aircraft fly overhead on a heading of about 180 (flight
direction is downward in the photo). To my regret, I did not think to take an image of the aircraft until it was nearing directly overhead.
What I found interesting about the aircraft was it's unusually slow airspeed and quiet propulsion system, for it's apparently large size. It had an
audible noise, that could not be heard until the aircraft was nearly overhead, sounding like a quiet rotor system. I have since reviewed online
videos from similar view angles of C-5, C-17, C-130 and V-22, but see no matches. Can anyone identify this light pattern that is shown on the
underside of this vehicle?
I also checked Flight Aware to see if there were any commercial or general aviation flight paths near my location, but no matches were found. Sorry
again for the lacking detail, as I used my mobile phone to take the image. I can provide more description as needed.
