That's what I heard!! I knew it was a big engine sound. Darn would loved to see it - I heard it twice today. This one was here in 2003. What a sound that engine makes.
Tim, I didn't get a good look at it, (it was really
motoring) but it flew straight down(south) the beach iI would say under a 1000 ft, and return about 10 minutes later going north.
It made a SHARP left turn over SNH toward the sound, I thought it may be going Manteo.
