Q. What large black jet has been flying over Wilmington on Saturday, March 2, and Sunday, March 3, at approximately 11:08 a.m. and again at 12:04 p.m. in the area south of the airport. If it’s not the normal touch and gos, then who is training and going so low?
A. “We have no knowledge of a ‘large black jet’ flying this past weekend,” said Gary Broughton, director of operations at Wilmington International Airport.
“I checked with the FAA Control Tower and they likewise had no knowledge of this aircraft,” he said.
There is a large, black World War II-era A-26 twin engine propeller aircraft based at the airport, but Broughton had no immediate information about it flying on March 2 or 3.
“If there is a concern that an aircraft is flying too low, I would refer them to the FAA website at www.FAA.gov where complaints can be filed,” Broughton said.
