As I was lying on my couch at around 5:00 today I heard what a I did not consider normal commercial airline traffic. Upon looking out the window, I saw three possibly F16's circling the city.

I turned on the local news and they said they were getting flooded with calls, and that this was only a drill.

I also thought that the Air Force was on a general standdown today, for safety check due to the mishandling of the two or three nuclear bombs last week...

anybody?

Well they were supposed to be. I will look into this. I don't think this would be just a drill.

On another message board today in a thread that had a posting about the stand down, someone posted this:


I live by Wright-Patterson AFB, and there were multiple C-22's taking off and landing there today, during the "stand-down". Also, there was some sort of bomber taking off, but I'm no air plane afficianado.


I take this to mean that the stand down wasn't really fully enacted.

could have been the Air National Guard, they were not standing down.

I couldn't find anything unless it was a practice run check for a game Tuesday or a airshow.

The Steelers play at home on Sunday... could have been a practice fly over.

I moved about 15 miles west of Pittsburgh about a month ago, almost nightly I hear large planes, they sound like C-130's but its too dark to see and occasionally I hear a scream of several jets. I cant vouch for what happens during day time since I am at work but there is a major AF base here so....

There wasn't just 3 there were a total of nine jets that flew over. My wife was sitting in traffic at the 5 o'clock hour near downtown Pittsburgh and called me and said the were 3 fighter jets that just flew over awfully low..then all the sudden 3 more..totally different ones ina different formation..then minutes later another 3. She did notice on the last 3 she could distinctly see "orange missles under the planes" of the last group. There is a military air field close to the city possibly stopping there.

That's odd cause I live in Queens,NY and was in the garage w/my father and heard this huge rumbling.I'm talking a deafening roar which just shook me to my core.I thought a jumbo jet was about to crash through the garage. i jumped off the ladder as I heard it,ran otside and saw 3 fighter jets flying extremely low and they were heading toward NYC. Must've been around the end of June beggining of July.Don't know if it means anything but keeps you on your toes.
