I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this plane. I have researched military id guides, image searched, and asked several naval and Air Force friends with no result.
- Location: off shore 20 miles south of Catalina island, California
- Date/time: 5pm June 29, 2023
Plane flew lowish (1000ft) over our boat, turned around and did it again. It is jet powered, fuselage mount I think.
Closest match I can find is F86 Sabre or Grumman F9 cougar. Don't think it's either one though.
It appeared all grey with no markings that I could discern. The images show a camouflage pattern but I think that's shadows?
