I'll be writing a post about our wonderful long girl's weekend for mom's birthday, but first I have to write about one of the most bizarre things I've ever witnessed.
While driving to Mt. St. Helens on Sunday, my sister Kate, a total bird-nerd suddenly yells, "What's that? Are those birds?" Then just seconds later realizes what she's seeing. Only now, we're all seeing it. We watched it for about 45 seconds before they flew behind a mountain. I handed my camera to my niece Lisa to get a picture from her window and this is it.
It was a commercial airliner, flying low with two fighter jets off the right wing and two more off the left wing. It was so bizarre. We watched the news and nothing. Why on earth would 4 fighter jets be flying in formation off the wings of a commercial plane? I know that many other people must have seen this. It looked like the plane was possibly going to land in Portland although we were in southern Washington when we saw it. Did any of you Oregon people see it?
We even thought of Will and Kate, but they were already in LA. If there had been a terror threat on board, I'm sure there would have been something on the news. You know how I love this kind of thing, but I want the mystery solved!
