About 5 minutes ago, my son called me from my desk. He was yelling from our pool out back, "daddy, daddy, look at those 2 planes up there!" When I got out there, I looked up and saw 2 big jets. I'm guessin coming out of Philadelphia International. Could have been BWI or lil ol New Castle's airport, but i'm thinkin Philly, based on the direction and all.

The 1 jet was almost sideways, veering off to it's side. the other was veering slightly the other way. And they were pretty high up in the sky. We're about 40 miles southwest of Philadelphia International Airport. We see the occasional plane overhead here. And sometimes, you might even see 2 planes in the sky, but always at opposite ends of the horizon above and usually traveling in a different dircetion. Or one may be high, the other low. These were right next to each other.

I heard that the Air Traffic Controllers were having some sort of problem on the coast. I wonder if this had to do with that. I wonder if this will be on the news tonight.

Wow, scary!  I wonder what the passengers did After they cleaned out their shorts!

Lucky your son was so observant, that is a once in a lifetime image to see!
