15 Miles West of Boston, Massachusetts
Walking my dog this afternoon I heard a loud aircraft and looked up to see Tacit Blue or a very similar designed airframe. It was white and it had the
blunted nose. I saw it for about 5 seconds before it disappeared into the clouds. It was pretty amazing!
Thirty seconds later, at a lower altitude but along a similar flight path, I saw an E2 Hawkeye. Twin prop AEW plane with a huge radome. The hawkeye
was followed by a C-2 Greyhound on the same flight path. They were all flying East to West. They flew on and I never caught another glimpse.
ATS is filled with good detectives and experts on experimental craft. What did I see? Tacit Blue is retired, correct? Military aircraft make rare
appearances in my neck of the woods. I see F-15's when they fly by Fenway Park and that's about it. I have never seen an AEW/AWACS plane in my life.
My impression is that it was carrying out radar/ELINT tests on the Tacit Blue-like aircraft.
I'll be carrying my camera with me tomorrow, that's for sure!
Edit to add: This was 5 miles from Hanscom AFB. It would be a safe bet to assume the aircraft came from there.
