So, I'm sitting here posting a thread about M14 mags and the next thing I know there's this deafening noise, I look outside, and two F14s, maybe F15s, are circling the area of my house, very, and I mean, very low. It looks like they might be circling the local jokel airport in Concord because I'm located where most planes circle to make their final approach. Anyway, these guys circled four times. I would say in the area 100 feet east of my house at maybe 200 feet altitude. Anyone know what the deal is?

Geez, I was about to post and ask the same thing.......You live a few miles away from me, on the other side of the freeway (i think [:)]) and DAMN they were low. Twin tail fighters, too far when I spotted them to tell. Kind of freaky.

That's 50 miles away as the crow flies. I live in the East Bay near Buchanan Field, which is located at the 680 Freeway and Highway 4 interchange.

Shit!

I'm on the west side of the freeway where a lot of air traffic makes that left-hand turn before their final approach into Buchanan. Kinda near DVC.
