About 4:30 on a recent afternoon, two fighter jets flew over Boone.
The first caused a noise so loud that I looked skyward and saw it flying east-southeast. Then, I heard the second fighter jet flying much lower and louder. This is so much different than just a few years ago when there were only helicopters or single engine airplanes flying over the ASU campus.
This is not the first time I have seen the fighter jets. Where are the jets going? Where are they coming from? Why are they so low? Why are they so frequent? The mountains resonate a louder boom from these jets that cause one to stand frozen and stare into the skies for answers.
