I just experienced something very strange, at least it was strange to me as I'd never heard anything like this before.
I work very close to an Air National Guard Base in NW Ohio. Every day, sometimes a couple of times per day, anywhere from 2 to 5 F-16's fly over my
building on approach to landing.
If I were to guess I'd say that when they cross my building they're 500 feet or so off the ground? ( total guess ).
It's always a very neat sight to be outside on break when they're landing, as they're close and loud. However today, a co-worker and myself
experienced something neat but strange.
I hear the planes coming, look up, they're about, oh I don't know 1000 ft or so away, and flying about 500-600 feet in the air. Once they're
about 500 ft closer to us and still about the same altitude, we hear it...
A very loud, high pitched "whislte" or "squeeking" sound. It sort of sounded like someone was "cat calling" at a woman, type whistle, but very
Do F-16's have external speakers that they can "communicate" through?
Could this be a test of some type of "sound" weapond?
