Then I heard the distinctive noise of propellers. Yep, right through those red leaves, coming my way.
So since I had the camera phone pointed that direction, I got lots of shots of a 4 engine airplane. I once flew on DC-6's, and it could have been one, but I think the wing configuration is different. Do you know?
So I'm sure someone who knows the old planes will be able to tell me what it was.
Why it flew over Black Mountain NC, is the mystery! But I'd rather see it than a drone!
Thanks to Suzi...here's a web photo of the C130j Hercules by Lockheed. Yep, she was probably right!
