Any Fighters Scrambled Thursday?

Sun Aug 18, 2002 11:34 am

While on vacation in Northern NH on Thu, I heard a couple fighters scream northward towards Maine or Quebec at a pretty low altitude. Since everyone said that they've never seen jets go in that particular direction, did anything happen over northern New England?

I have a follow up question:

Are fighters scrambled whenever a plane diverts?
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Funny you should say that. Thursday Night, around 11pm I think, I heard 2 or 3 F-16s fly north over my house. Was very odd hours for them to fly. they came from FWA.

I saw a bunch of them yesterday in Chicago, including a MIG-17!
