JET NOISE OVER WASHINGTON, DC

Posted on 01/29/2014 5:50:59 AM PST by 7thson

Got a question for Washington, DC-Maryland Freepers who live in the PG and Calvert Counties. I woke up last night at around 2330 to the sound of loud jet engines. At first I thought it was a tornado, it was so loud. It sound like it was right over the house. It was jet engines, that seemed to go up from Calvert County to PG and then back down. This lasted for about 15-29 minutes. Where I live, PAX River NAS is to the south and Andrews AFB is to the norh. Anyone hear this and/or know what was going on?

I believe Bambi was setting off on some jaunts to the Midwest after his stupid speech, and the Mooch was also going on a (separate) trip elsewhere to promote her “fitness program.” Maybe they were preparing for this precious cargo...

MOST LIKELY...

Holding patterns-- aircraft waiting for instrument approach clearance...

--OR--
Missed approach traffic from Andrews-- after a missed approach --holding awaiting clearance to alternate airport

My humble only...

Urban warfare training? Lot of that going on. When I resided close to Quantico, choppers would regularly fly directly over my house at seemingly rooftop level. Noise and vibration was incredible. Usually this occurred late night, involving a multiple rotors, heavy lift, always headed SW from Quantico. Probably headed to A.P. Hill.

with the winter weather in the south it may has caused a different traffic pattern for some flights.

No, he's coming here to Pittsburgh to screw-up traffic all day.

The weather also amplifies jet engine sound.

a guess... but 11:30p could be about the right time for those fedgov types returning from the after SOTU parties via private jet

Could be prep for Superbowl. There was Airforce activity over NJ and NY early this morning and the planes involved all landed on Long Island.

Simple, just come up with an energy-burning, catchy, self-motivating slogan such as “MOVE FORWARD.”

I'm about 10 miles south of Andrews AFB and I didn't hear anything. All kinds of aircraft fly over my house all the time on approach to or takeoff from Andrews.

I guess after 20+ years I'm so used to it I don't notice it anymore.
