I live in Clearwater Florida and multiple times a day, I have giant multi-prop Coast Guard planes, ans choppers flying low over my home.
However, today as I sat outside, I heard one but it sounded a bit different.
When I looked up, I expected to see the White with red Coast Guard "Super Hercules" flying low over us ... but the plane I seen was different.
First off, it's elevation was lower than average.
But the big difference was color. It appeared a dark gray with what looked like a red symbol on its side and tail. (Almost like a circular shape of letters painted over each other in one single spot.)
It had 4 props, and I usually get a picture of things like this, but I was shocked... I thought "Maybe a special Coast Guard plane took off out of Clearwater base?" Then I thought "Ahhhh... must be an Air Force Plane from MacDill... ?" However, they rarely send up large planes west of the base at such a low altitude.
So, I spent too much time wishing I snapped a picture as I went down a rabbit hole searching the web for answers. So now I'm here. Lol
TL;DR Dark grey/black 4 prop (like a Coast Guard Super Herc) plane with a single red symbol on its side and tail flying low , due west, as if it launched from Clearwater Coast Guard base. It definitely wasn't the usual white CG or grey AF plane color
Thanks again in advance.
