No, it’s not the coming of Red Dawn, but people were freaked out about a LOUD rumbling sound over Fairfield County yesterday.
There were 4 F-15 Strike Eagle Fighter jets that were practicing their fly-over at Arthur Ashe Stadium for the US Open in Queens.
And if you were a little freaked out about why there was military planes in the air without notice of an airshow or previous warning, you weren’t alone.
In quotes collected by the Connecticut Post:
“We had an awesome view from the backyard. Goose bumps. The coolest,” Susan McCarthy Braden posted on the Darien police department’s Facebook page.
“I swear I thought a plane was going to crash near us,” posted Nancy Lavallo.
