A Chinook just flew over my house. It was loud enough that I had plenty of time from when I first heard it to get outside to see it go over.

Saw these two a about the same time. The chopper was coming in from the north at about 1500ft and 10 minutes later the Seneca had just departed upsher county W22 and was climbing out on departure.I have no idea what the state police helicopter is.But the Seneca is a local charter aircraft.
Neither of the picture are of my actual spotting.A rare event for me.But it is a beautiful fall day for flying.Kind of a fun coincidence I was just taking off from w22 in the game when I spotted these.

I went to pick my sister up from her friend's apartment on Friday and a Cessna Citation (not sure which variety, I think it was one of the earlier ones) went directly over my head.

Not today but I'm fairly sure a Raptor went directly over my house after departing Tinker AFB (TIK) yesterday.

Patrick31337 mentioned earlier that a Chinook went overhead. Reminds me of what happened earlier this past spring.
Usually I can tell about what the aircraft is, but having heard it, this time I wasn't sure at all. Surprise! A freaking Osprey, at about 1,500-2,000 ft overhead. What a sight. And I haven't seen any more since.

I've never seen an Osprey. I hope one comes over some day when I can watch it.

A group of Chinooks flew over this evening, so I grabbed my phone and got a picture. :lol:
Chinooks at night.

I know. You can't see them. Well, two of them are there, but all you can see is the white light. I think a third was between them in this picture, but the light wasn't flashing bright when I took the picture.

Too many. Theyre loud and smell of jet fuel gets annoying quick. Please planes go find another airport.

Some marketing with a gulf stream I think. I think I heard the photographer say "say cheese" to the plane.

I just got home. Thanks to winter, it's dark outside. I saw the lights of a small jet flying over and could just make out its shape. I checked Flight Aware and confirmed that it is an ERJ-145 on its way from Lexington, KY, to Houston.

A400M flew over while I was at a work placement today. Thought it was a C17, till I heard the prop noise.
Fliped out of the arena, again! :(
