A plane roared over Ballard around 8:30 Tuesday night, startling some residents (including ourselves) who stepped outside to see what was generating so much volume. “(It was) the loudest I’ve heard in a long time. Woke up my 6 year old!” wrote SeattleRichardson in the forum. “That scared the LIFE out of me,” said GinaMarie. A couple weeks ago, a similar incident startled Greenwood residents at 3:30 a.m. No word on the type of plane, but some folks in the forum are speculating that it’s a UPS plane flying at low altitude due to the weather.
Update: Says “Interbaby” in comments below, “I was on my roof fixing a leak in Interbay when I was startled by the loud roar overhead. It was a military jet moving southbound very slowly toward Boeing Field.”
