...over Springfield, Missouri

March 3, 1999


From Elizabeth O'Reilly, who states: "I thought this one was interesting. It is not very high, moving VERY fast, and clearing leaving a large trail, dispelling the myth that the planes must be flying way up there in order to leave a trail. This was right over the treetops, but moving so fast I almost didn't get the plane in the shot. I can't enlarge it with my computer equipment, and I probably was moving the camera too much in any event. It was a really quick shot, and I felt lucky to have my camera with me! I have many others, showing their various x's and grid patterns, but this is the lowest plane I've seen. I just wish I could identify it. It was taken March 3, not 2-3-99, as it shows. I hit the wrong key."
