Very low level - >hundred feet or so. All this fuss about low flying miltary planes... We have a Air National Guard base about 50 miles to the south, and I work just north of the major commercial airport in our region, right under the flight path of the main North-South runway. Also, I work with a retired Air Force LtCol who flew tankers for 20 years. Two or three times a year, planes from the ANG base - mostly tankers, and occasionally a cargo plane - come up to our airport to practise landings and take-offs. According to the LtCol, this is routine at all ANG bases as the pilots need to get experience at all sorts of different runways. One chacteristic of all these excercises is that the planes after a take-off will keep a very low altitude (but certainly higher than Eleanor's "100ft"!) and a very slow speed as they circle around for another practice run. They are low enough to read the tail numbers- perhaps 300-600ft. All this makes for an unusual observation to one used to a commerical jet rapidly moving out. But there is certainly nothing sinister about this. Bruce Hutchinson Listen to 'Strange Days...
