BERKELEY (CBS SF) — An F/A-18 Super Hornet Navy fighter jet buzzed Berkeley Tuesday, and created quite the buzz on Twitter as its fast and loud flyover got plenty of attention.
One person reported the plane as low as 300-500 feet.
“I thought it may have been an earthquake. Pretty much the entire building was shaking,” said Ryen Banihashemi. “I thought maybe some people were running on the roof, honestly I had idea. It was that loud.”
CBS SF confirmed with the Federal Aviation Administration that it was indeed a jet fighter flying over early Tuesday afternoon, based out of Naval Air Station Lemoore, south of Fresno.
Many people wondered about the flight path and nature of the flight, some seriously, others in true Berkeley fashion.
