Weird Noises in Florida 0x6a656666 posted:3/20/2011 11:00:21 PM Anyone else hear this or have any idea what it could be?People have been trying to link these noises up to the new oil spill spotted in the gulf somehow, but don't quite know how it connects.iamwhoiam posted:3/21/2011 12:46:23 AM What part of Florida??0x6a656666 posted:3/21/2011 2:51:46 AM I guess Flagler County was where it happened more noticeably than others.tapuout4985 posted:3/21/2011 3:06:53 AM Very interesting. That does sound a bit like a tornado, but it is obviously not tornado weather. My first guess would actually be low flying aircraft such as cargo planes. If there is a big enough formation of them spread out over a large area the noise generated by the engines can sort of turn into this sort of never ending, never changing drone. I don't live far from the 185th refueling wing of the Air Force and sometimes when they fly over there can be an effect like this, but I find it strange it lasted so long without really changing. Add in the ground and house shaking and it is even weirder. I haven't done any research of my own yet, but will be very interested to find out the truth of this situation.0x6a656666 posted:3/21/2011 3:10:40 AM According to reports, although 8 minute was filmed, it actually lasted 20 minutes.Swamptick posted:3/21/2011 8:15:38 AM Rocket test?weyard posted:3/21/2011 9:24:18 AM I think it might just be high atmospheric wind. I hear sounds like that all the time in my area. I don't recall there being any strong wind felt at those times. It's a normal occurance here. These sorts of noises have been heard for years and no one seems to think it odd. I'm in Kentucky, and there are no military bases around, and I haven't saw any planes flying in formation at the times that I've heard it. I always assumed that it was strong air currents at or above the cloud layer. jaguarsky posted:3/21/2011 9:30:25 AM Any fracking going on in this area?spiritech0 posted:3/21/2011 10:29:52 AM Note the dates. Slap it on aircraft. That's my suggestion.This was a featured pictorial in several publications years ago.

I am retired from military (AF special Ops ) it sounds like KC-10 or 135 engine. those are refueling aircraft. . I know my aircraft sounds. Like a C-5 has a high pitch squeal like bad fan on a car. fighters have a crackle sound etc. gary107 posted:3/23/2011 1:27:33 PM we used to have rocket engine test in a valley just north east of San Diego. Land values went up and I think they moved to Nevada in the late 1970's. Does sound like engine testing. Please log in or become a member to add a post.
