[quote:Anonymous Coward 1143800:MV8xNDQ2NjMxXzIzODQzNjExX0FDMjJEQkIx] I am also originally from that area - I could even hear the late night traffic on Pellisippi Parkway at night. Are you sure you're from that area? It's PARKWAY, not highway. It hasn't ever been called highway by anybody, even the hilljacks who went to William Blount, or the carpetbagger yankee assholes from the Northeast who send their kids to Maryville. Yes, there is a base in that area - McGhee Tyson Airbase. I know there used to be an air refueling wing stationed there, and they always had a few fighters on the tarmac at any given point. As far as I know, while the airbase does run C-130's, it does not have a runway that would accomodate a B-52. Maybe they fly sorties over to refuel passers-by, but the B-52's shouldn't be landing if what I've been told is correct. Is there an air show at TYS anytime soon? That is typically when you will get the low-flyers. Back in the 1980's it was really bad with planes flying extra, extra low. In the surrounding resedential areas, windows and sliding glass doors were breaking. There were other stories going around..whoever the CO was over there ran a pretty loose ship... I mean, seriously...you haven't been in town long if you are this concerned over low-flying planes in this part of East TN. [/quote]
SO FIRST ONE I SAW ON THE WAY HOME from getting my kids. It was flying so low that cars on the highway slowed down. One pulled over. It literally looked like it was making a landing. I saw several more while sitting outside in my rear yard, I have a link to what they looked like.
I enjoy watching the clouds and stars so I have my binoculars in the shed. I did not have to get them out to see the green shade of the plane and US on it. Also when I did get them out to get a closer view, there was no question these were military.
Why does this matter? no bases around where I live, not a usual sight and trust me I am outside a LOT.
Is this a new commitment the US is going to or more stuff going to the middle east
Oh and the kicker is one of these planes was getting fueled in mid air by a smaller military plane maybe indicating a long trip. No doubt to me military colors
