Moments ago I was working in the house and heard a plane pass right over and we're talking CLOSE.
At first I thought it might be flying up to see Etna (the Volcano) but it wasn't on the usual flight path planes take and by the sound of it the
thing was HUGE - and military.
This thing passed over the house twice and I swear the pilot was like a kid taking a joy ride! Dipping, banking hard turns, going right up on it's
side, but the plane is HUGE, not a little whippet Cessna.
It didn't go far so I dealt with my geese (who were freaking out) then hearing it turn back I grabbed my camera, ran upstairs to the upper floor to
get some pictures and here's what I got. Not great but I've not mastered the art of using a digital camera for motion pics (who has) but I got a
This was freaky but don't get me wrong though I loved it!
As it approached (again) I started waving both hands (of course) and the pilot flew right over me.
This plane got so close the house shook under my feet and I swear I could feel the wind it made!
And it's position! Right on it's side, one wing could have sliced through the house like a loaf a bread, the other thrust up to the sun!
(But of course that pic didn't come out - filthy dig cam!)
What kind of plane is this - besides huge?
Is it an Italian Military or American Military from Sigonella (close to where I live)... out on a joy ride?
I'm looking forward to the news tonight - I hope something about this is mentioned - I can't see how it could slip pass notice!
Whoever that pilot was he/she was sure having a great time!
If not they were training a really amazing exercise - like how to turn a plane inside out in three easy passes.
