Readers reported: “Sounded like two jets flew extremely low above houses last night around 11:45. Heard in Woodridge, NE, and apparently out into Hyattsville. It was almost unbearably loud, and I’m not particularly noise sensitive.”

“So I woke up to an extremely loud noise – and my neighborhood listserv starts popping off a few minutes later. Apparently we had two fighter jets just fly over #Hyattsville?”

“It was crazy loud in Riverdale.”

“Anyone else in DC area hear an incredibly loud/close aircraft fly by (sounded almost like a missile) just now? What was that?? (NE in Hyattsville).”


Courtney and others wrote earlier “What is going on with this loud jet that is flying over Glover Park? I hear it but I don’t see it…”

Thanks to Evan for sending the video (you can’t seem them really well but you can definitely hear them):

And in impeccable timing from Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s Office:
