    Default Fly by

    Sitting in the house tonight and got buzzed by some aircraft. It was low altitude (waiting for the crash kinda thing) and was here and gone damn quick. I am thinking UAV or similar. Do they fly out of Shaw or McEntire?

    Northeast Columbia. Neighbor heard it as well.

    Had the same thing in Chapin. Came over the lake, and kept flying toward Saluda. Very low, seemed like it was 200-300ft.

    Fighter jets were flying over Lexington and the lake yesterday around 11:30 at low altitude.

    Was it a plane or UAV/drone?

    Couldn't find any official mention from yesterday online but this was posted June 1, 2019 about new regs.

    We got a call that it crashed in mcbee. That ended up not being the case. Never found it then got another call of reports of it crashing around Elgin. Figured it was an osprey doing night drills. But you never can take something like that lightly.

    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh-

    No more like Jimmy Buffet in the Hemisphere Dancer, Stephen Stills would be "higher" than this.

    Shaw and McEntire both have F-16s and Shaw now has drones as well. Sometimes the F-15s from Seymour Johnson come down to play at the bombing range in Wedgefield.

    Nothing to see here.
