Sound Off: Did anyone ever figure out what the low-flying plane over the KU campus in March was?
In short, no.
Most witnesses said that the jet looked like a military plane, possibly a F-16 fighter jet. However, who was flying it or what it was doing rattling the windows of Lawrence remain unknown.
The Kansas Adjutant General’s office and Kansas University administrators say they have no information about the fly-over or the jet. Sharon Watson, public affairs director at the Kansas Adjutant General’s office, looked into the event calling air force bases as far as Texas. “We have not been able to track down anything about that particular plane,” she said.
Watson could only confirm that the plane was not from Kansas.
Lawrence Municipal Airport operator Lloyd Hetrick said he had no information about the flight.
The FAA would not comment on the incident; it does not comment on military operations.
