  • A Marine flying an F35 gave my car a look-see!

    Took about a 100 mile (each way) trip to the Blufton / Hilton head area of S Carolina on a beautiful spring day. The purpose was to get lost and avoid I95, which IMHO is the most boring road in the state, or maybe the south. Found myself traveling north on rte 21, which is right next to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort. So, the stereo is on pretty loud, and suddenly an enormous roar drowns out the tunes. Maybe 50 feet in front of me, coming in for a traditional landing (not VTOL), and not more than 30 feet off the ground, I see the pilot shoot a very quick glance at me (or so I choose to think). What a sight.

    This remains the reason Torch Red is the best color!

    Smiles all the way home

      What a cool story/adventure. Thanks for sharing it. I can not imagine how loud it must have been right in front of you.

          Your PDR might well have captured the event, if you have it set on "start/stop", e.g. whenever you start your car, the PDR initiates and stops when you turn off the car. Hope you will let us know!

            Thats Great! Hear the fighters around here. Coupla hours ago it wasn't just a fly by but maneuvering. Guess it has to do with the rocket launce at Wallops a half hour ago. Wife saw it from the beach and said it looked good.

                Turns out I have a nice recording of it. First time I've even reviewed PDR recordings. The camera is a very wide angle view and the video isn't nearly as impressive as the real thing
