So bit of a back story...I live in a smaller city in SE Missouri. In very close proximity to a local major hospital. I'm used to hearing helicopters
land and take off from this hospital many times during the day/night. No other real "air traffic". I do see commercial jets periodically, but as far
as I know, this area is not a major corridor for air traffic.
So, that being said...
Late last night, after coming home from work, I was just wasting time browsing ATS with the TV on in the background. Approximately 1:15am or so
Central time. Heard what I thought might be a helicopter landing or taking off from the hospital. No biggie...happens all the time.
Well...bout 7-10 minutes later, not only do I hear the same thing, but I can "feel" it as well. When I muted TV and listened, I determined "not a
helicopter". I went outside to see if I could see whatever it was. No good...I could hear what sounded like a large plane, sounded like props to me,
not jets, flying what I thought was really low and really fast.
Brushed it off...
Then about 10 minutes later, same freaking thing!
Tried to rush outside again, to see if I could see it, but to no avail. Just heard the same thing...really low (so it seemed to me) and really fast.
So not being able to see anything, I came back in, only to hear the same exact thing approximately 10 minutes later. This time, I was able to get out
in time to see some lights. It was some sort of airplane, not a UFO lol...but again, flying really low and really fast.
These four planes were flying due east, right over my location. There is nothing to the immediate west of me, nor it there anything to the immediate
east of me, that I'm aware of (in the realm of military bases and whatnot...). Fort Leonard Wood is probably about 350 miles to the northwwest of me,
as the crow flies...they might have come from there...Whitman AFB is even further northwest...the only thing east of me is Fort Campbell...
I have (for whatever reason) determined that these were some sort of military aircraft. What I want to know is where did they come from? Where were
they going? What were they?
If anyone else in Southern Missouri, Southern Illinois, or Southern Indiana heard/saw anything around 1:15-1:40am, could you let me know? I just wanna
know that I wasn't just hearing/seeing things...
Here in swampeast Missouri, we don't get to witness these kinds of things too often, and I thought it was strange...
