JUNE 10, 2010 APPROX 2000 UT LOCAL HEADING APPROX 120 DEG ALTITUDE APPROX 9000 FT LARGE JET NOT FULL THRUST PASSED OVER HURRICANE,UT IN THE SW HEADING. LOT OF NOISE OF COURSE…POPULATION OUTSIDE TO SEE WHAT GOING ON…NOTHING IN LOCAL NEWS HERE IN SOUTHWEST UTAH. NO FIELD LOCAL TO HANDLE A APPROACH OF THIS AIRCRAFT??? WAS IT LOSS OF CABIN PRESSURE AND LOW ALTITUDE PASS ON WAY TO LAS VEGAS MCCARRAN FIELD???
ANY INFO FROM THE GANG???
Please don’t shout! (all caps is shouting)
Was it 2000 UT (universal time) or 2000 local (MDT) time?
Number of engines?
High wing/low wing?
T tail or conventional tail?
Nellis AFB is in LV. . . Military or commercial aircraft?
Closest airports to Hurricane that could handle a large aircraft would be KSGU (St. George) followed by KCDC (Cedar City). But if in a SW direction, closest would be KSGU, followed by the aforementioned KLSV and KLAS.
But without knowing the type of aircraft, it would be hard to tell on anything.
