Cool pic! I work right next to Hanscom AFB at my new job and also did for 5 years at my last job. Although the base is just a shell of it's former self, fighters do take off and land there with some frequency. Still sends chills up and down my spine. They come in so low sometimes my whole building shakes. It's so cool.

See what? Maybe you have a special talent.

They do make an impression.

One flew over my house during the Lakeland Air show a couple of years ago, it was incredibly low and slow.
Almost felt like I was in a SciFi movie, the sound of the aircraft was so awesome.

I'm betting that its an RC plane. Could be either a fuel powered or battery powered RC plane. Did it fly completely out of sight? If so then its probably the real thing.

It's real. The OP was near Palmdale where you will frequently see planes like this. Palmdale is home to the Lockheed skunkworks and it's also very close to Edwards AFB.

I remember way back many years ago driving cross country and I was in the middle of no where New Mexico. All the sudden I started to hear this huge rumble that started out loud and got even louder really fast. Scared the******out of me and then all the sudden a B-52 appeared in my front windshield flying directly over me at probably less than 300 feet. I watched as he flew off across the desert at that altitude and eventually out of site.

We ride a bike trail near Wright Pat and it is not unusual to have one fly over on approach. It can spook you if the wind is right, it will cast one heck of a shadow over you before you hear it.

Mark, in the early sixties, at Carswell AFB in Ft Worth, we had the 7th Bomb Wing of B52s. They were and still are a site to see.
