Did Anyone See the Plane in Saco Escorted by Four Fighter Jets?
There's something you don't see every day...
And yet, no word on why. Tuesday afternoon several people reported seeing a plane escorted by four fighter jets. The plane was seen in Biddeford, Saco and Scarborough. But there has been no official report.
Mark Greenlaw posted video and a picture he caught when the escorted plane passed over Biddeford.
It's super disturbing to see this. It could have been as innocent as assistance for refueling - but it's unsettling to say the least. Usually when fighter jets escort a plane, it's because of some sort of danger. Either the plane is in trouble, or has been hijacked or there's been a disturbance.
There have been reports of escorted planes because of disturbances. One Delta flight back in 2016, had to be escorted in an emergency landing in Arizona because a guy standing by the cockpit door would not sit down when asked.
There have been no official public reports (yet) of this incident on Tuesday in Southern Maine. Super weird.
