Ever See A Sudden Shadow?

Sat May 15, 2004 4:09 pm

Ok this is gonna sound really crazy lol... But have you ever just seen a shadow come out of no where suddenly and dissapear suddenly. Now my question really is, are these shadows that you see suddenly from airliners flying over head?

Thanx um although it sounds kinda like some 6th sense type stuff. lol

We'll call it "The 737th sense"

If it is an airliner, and its shadow is detectable on the ground, then it's got to be audible.

Of course.all airlines cast shadows and the fall on something.Happened to me twice-once with a wide-body twin on approach to one of the 3 DC area airports,and again about 2 months ago at school during gym.You really see how fast the damn thing is going when the shadow passes you.

"all airlines cast shadows and the fall on something."

But if the airliner is at FL350 its shadow won't be noticeable on the ground.
