PostSubject: Anyone else seeing this???   Wed Jun 11, 2014 4:35 pm

Over the past few days military jets have been flying from the east going westward by the dozens. Some are flying in groups of 3's.. I hadn't started counting them until today.. I counted well over 50 and I only worked outside for half the day.

The only one I saw flying the opposite direction was some kinda jet hauling ass!!! I saw a vertical con-trail appear and thought, "Thats weird", this jet made what looked like the curvature of 1/4 of the earth in about 3 minutes.. the other day, another weird one.. I watched what I could only identify as a jet but appeared to have very small wings, I really saw no wings at all but it must have had wings.. hauling ass like the other one I saw but, no con-trail at all... Someone else has to be seeing this.. Even the office girl who never get's out commented on it as remarkable..

I'm thinking it must be this... I did a google search on it and this makes sense... It was crazy seeing all of them.. Their con-trails almost blocked out the sun on a perfectly sunny day there were so many.. Never seen anything like it..

It probably has more to do with an increased presence due to Russian Bear's patrolling the West coast of the US. The planes may be moving to intercept, hence their speed.

I don't think it had to do with the bombers.. They're not going to send what equaled to several hundred jets over 3 to 4 days to intercept a couple bombers.. BUT, it DOES feel like we're back in the 70's with the cold war. I hope cooler heads prevail here.
