I live in Bessemer/McCalla and my house just shook. Couldn’t tell if it was an F16 or raptor maybe out of Montgomery?  Was it the flyover for the football game?

I was wondering what that was. It was crazy loud in alabaster

I tried to find a video of the fly over so I could see what they were.
Montgomery still flying F16’s?

That is a low level area and F16s and F35s from Eglin fly over that area.

From the right angle F-35s look like UFOs.

And they are LOUD.

I was with VFA-137 in the late 80s. FA/18's

I came home on leave and was at the Upside-down Plaza drinking. Went up to the bar to order and when I turned around I was face to face with one of my pilots. Literally my division officer.

I had to do a reality check. Was I in Birmingham? Is this really the Plaza?

He laughed and told me to settle down. He said he flew up to go to a wedding in Tuscaloosa.

I asked if he flew one of our birds up here and he said, yeah, its over at the National Guard hanger.

One of the most surreal experiences Ive ever had!

So, point of the (longish) story, coulda been someone home on leave
