Toledo Talk

Airplane Overhead Like Roaring Sound

We live in Point Place. Last night about 2 AM, we were awakened by a loud, roaring sound outside. Disarmed the security system, went outside and tried to determine the direction of the noise.
It sounds like jet airplanes overhead. Heard it again around 6 AM this morning. And again mid afternoon. And now. From where we live, it sounds like it is coming from the sewage treatment plant in the Detwiler Park area.
What the heck could it be?

^ Was just about to link the story. Possibly steam blasting noise carrying across the bay.

We were at the Sundance drive in and could hear a loud roaring sound there as well as in west Toledo when we got home. Though ch 13 said the jet sounds at 2 and 3 am were the F16's doing a special practice mission.

2AM would be a very unusual special practice mission for the 180th. They are typically on the deck by 10PM.

Justread, it was a deployment training mission. Eight F16's leaving for Hungary.

I heard it in Holland late Friday night/Saturday morning. Sounded like jets overhead, but no doppler effect I usually hear-just a constant drone. Next thought was a large military transport with it's engines throttled up taking off to the west, again no doppler effect and a constant drone. Figured whatever it was the AM news would report something be it aliens or monsters. Nope.

Sounded like this ( a bit loud):

Oregon had asked the steam plant to delay steam blowing for a bit while the migrations were going on due to concerns voiced by some residents. They agreed immediately and postponed it as long as they could. Guess that was this morning.

Thanks everyone. I knew I'd find the answer here. Definitely was not jets flying overhead. This sound is steady and constant when active.

Did it sound like a mega quick release of an Instant Pot LOL:)

Did anyone hear this sound again this evening, before sunset?
