Mystery Plane That Just Went Over My House

Sat Aug 10, 2002 5:41 am

Ok I live 45 minutes away from PIT so I found it rare to see a plane this loud and this low. I couldn't determine what it was but it was like a whitish color and had a red stripe across it. It was a smaller jet like a rj but it had the engines on the wings. It kind of reminded me of American Eagle but I don't know quite what it was. If anyone can help please do thanks, Airplanelover

It was a conspiracy against you.

It was the EMB-175 demonstrator model which is visiting PIT today on a sales call to US Airways top executives. Part of the demonstrations involve low level flybys over residential communities.
