Yesterday afternoon for the second time I saw this aircraft flying south near K22 at about 5000’ under the overcast. He was really moving fast! I would estimate 350 knots. I saw it or a simular north bound the day before. I went to FA to see what it was, No Joy! It was low wing,and had rounded wingtips. I am thinking its one of those new military turboprop trainers. I would not think a GA aircraft at those speeds and in marginal weather would fly VFR. Any Ideas what it could have been?
BTW it looked to small to be a TBM or Palatis (sp)
I’d have taken 5000 as a report of severe clear the last three times I’ve gone out! I had 2300 last week and that was the best for the last 3 flights!
When I saw the mention of the T-6 (I defaulted to the North American T-6) and thought that fast and T-6 is an oxymoron, but yeah, the new Raytheon T-6 sounds like it might fit the description. That looks like a fun airplane to fly!
Let me put it this way. I have worked on and around aircraft as a commercial pilot , an A&P with a FAA inspection authorization for over 50 years. So yes I am sure it was a turboprop.
What qualification do you have to ask?
