    Sweet Rufus, Mark!

    Any idea about the air traffic noise this afternoon? Definitely doesn’t sound commercial, and out of the ordinary.

      No advisories, nor anything unusual on flight tracker (though that wouldn’t show military aircraft, for example). What area are you seeing/hearing this in? I’m currently at Arrowhead Gardens post-C2CCAC meeting, hadn’t noticed anything unusual in Upper Fauntleroy before leaving; now I keep thinking I’m hearing rumbling outside but this is much closer to Boeing Field …

        Forgot to check in on this! We were in Sunrise Heights. Also saw and heard some biplanes, but this was closer to the comment below that mentioned Blue Angel-like. Seemed like military based on sound.

    Was headed to that area yesterday around noon and saw a couple aircraft travelling in odd directions. Just a bit out of the ordinary.  And Mark-as always, killer bird pictures.

    I’m in the 9000 block of 16th SW and noticed some jet aircraft sounds that were reminiscent of the Blue Angels, without such high speed.  I was curious. but didn’t bother to go outside and check, as I have a very limited view of the sky. Pretty much just a small “window” straight up, and the only direction I have any decent few in the distance is to the west.  Sorry I didn’t notify you, WSB. —Mike

      Later in the day, a couple old biplanes flew overhead – we’re in the BFI general-aviation path. Nothing on the Museum of Flight calendar, though!

    I’m in the path too and will occasionally hear what sounds like an old biplane. I was out in the alley behind my building a few days ago and heard what sounded like one (a bit of an unfamiliar sound this time of year when they start flying again—I don’t recall noticing them during Winter months).  I looked up for a moment, but could not tell for sure if it was a biplane, or single-wing plane of the same era, as it was a bit off in the distance, and I had to watch where I was stepping. —Mike 

Sorry, comment time is over.
