While taking my boat out of the water about half an hour ago, I observed a 737-700 (or -300 with winglets) fly by at about 1000 feet, as if it were going into MYR. But when I checked flightaware, nothing was going in there except a DL CRJ200 and G4 MD82. Then when I got back to my house, it came over, again very low, at about 700 feet, so low that I saw its main landing gear tucked up into its belly. It had a white bottom but I couldn't see the marking on the side due to the position of the sun. At first I thought it could be Boeing testing a 737 from CHS, but there was nothing on the schedule for there, either. Anybody got any info on what it is or what it's doing? Thanks.
BTW, I was surprised at how quiet it was! Lots of the CRJs that takeoff from MYR and fly over a lot higher are a lot louder.
I don't believe Grand strand is big enough. Plus if this plane had intended on going theee, they were way off track. They headed eaat out over the ocean then came back west over my house. Grand Strand Airport is North of where I am. Plus the only things I ever see out of Grand Strand are a few piston singles and the banner-pullers. The only other airports I can think of are Myrtle Beach executive and Georgetown County, both too small and both WAY out of the way of this plane
