So there I was just sitting there when all of a sudden I hear the sound of a low flying fighter jet pass very close to where I am. I go outside to
investigate and here he comes screaming out of the sky flying at an altitude of only a few hundred feet at a distance from me of roughly 300 yards (at
his closest).. I could see the jet clear as day and easily identified it as an F-18.
He flew low and pitched straight up into the sky, did some sort of cool maneuver and flew off... I thought it ended there...
Just a few minutes ago it came back and buzzed the residential area again this time right over top of me again only a few hundred feet off the
I checked online to see if our Airspace was restricted for this morning.. It was not.. as this is a very active area for small civilian aircraft his
low altitude flying could have posed real danger.
My question is.. Since when does the air force do low altitude bombing drills over residential area? Especially in a small fairly remote town..
Anyway figured it was worth reporting as this has never happened here before.. Although I will not give my exact location I know for a fact the Jet
came from Hill Air force Base as they are the closest... Any thoughts?
P.S. I also think it is worth noting that if there was anyone sleeping in town this morning... they aren't anymore!
