I live in a a rural area of Florida and quite often we have 2-3 S-3’s Vikings doing a very low high speed pass through our area. After talking with the local controllers at a nearby airport they inform me we have a some sort of low level training pattern for the military. Is there anywhere I can find out the patterns? It almost appears to be a game of follow the leader or tag the way they are chasing each other. Also I have never seen any other aircraft except S-3’s Vikings, why would not other aircraft use these patterns?
I love it when these aircraft do there fly-by’s, but my wife is not keen on it since she has horses and they seem to loose there mind when it happens.
