they looked like F-14 style fighter jets) flying low. They wear flying under the chemclouds.They wear white or gray. They wear pretty fast but i think
they could go way faster. So my question is, what are the military rules or laws for flying these type of jets. Are they aloud to fly to fly ow over
a populated area's?
Did they have twin vertical tails and widely separated engines? That would be a F 14, but I thought the F14 had been retired.
If the tails were vertical, not flared out at angles, and the twin engines were close together that would make it an F15.
If the tails flared out at an angle, and it was twin engine that would be an FA 18.
If it were single-engine single vertical tail, most likely an F 16, or a jet trainer / chase plane for the shuttle - I think are called Talons.
When I was in high school, NAS Oceana in Virginia Beach would send out training flights of F14s for the pilots to log their req. hours in the air.
They always used our high school as a landmark for turn arounds and over flights.
It was low and spectacular!
