Did anyone hear a really loud airplane?

October 21st, 2009 by Doree

Chris wanted us to ask if anyone else heard the extremely loud airplane flying over their house early Tuesday morning in NW Greenwood/East Crown Hill:

Just want to check if our neighbors heard the same thing. Were you guys awakened by a jetliner that seemed to be flying at a VERY low altitude at 3:40 a.m. today? It woke us both up with the roar of the engines and got the dog REALLY wound up. It literally sounded like a train a block away!

Anyone hear loud noise last night?

August 28th, 2009 by Doree

Karl emailed us early this morning about a strange noise up on Phinney Ridge last night:

Thursday 11:30 and going strong at nearly 1 am, a roar of more than copters coming from east of 1st Ave. NW and 77th N. Rude! Don’t see any construction reports. What gives?

Anybody have any ideas of what it was?

Update 11:45 a.m.: The mystery may be solved! Several people wrote in comments that it sounds like the concrete drilling work that is happening on I-5. Washington State Department of Transportation even has their own blog post devoted to the noise, along with audio.
