... It couldn't have been Apaches, maybe UH-60 Blackhawks. They're profile is similiar. At distances it is easy to mistake them. Did it look like this? [img]http://www.helis.com/h/h60_22.jpg[/img]

Vampire-- when I was a kid living in Cupertino back in the 50s we used to [once in a while] see B-29s [i think] fly over on their way to Moffat Field. Its always cool to see them fly low or be buzzed by a jet while fishing in the Sierras.

It was probably the flyover for the Veteran's Day parade in San Francisco. Just saw it on the 10 o'clock news. Looked just like the above photo.
