Heard a jet? Here's what it was

CINCINNATI -- You heard it. You wondered. Here's the answer.

A B-1 bomber, piloted by Lakota West High School graduate Maj. Kevin Johnson, flew over the Tri-State as part of Wednesday's Military Appreciation Night at Great American Ball Park.

Johnson flew in from Dyess Air Force Base near Abilene, Texas.

The evening's Hometown Hero was Master Sgt. Corey Hood, also a Lakota West grad and Army Golden Knights parachutist who died after suffering serious injuries during an accident at the Chicago Air and Water Show in August.

Hood's wife, Lyndsay, stood in for him Wednesday night.

As for Johnson's jet, people from Milford to New Richmond to Fort Wright reported hearing the rumble, shaking windows and rattling some nerves.

There was also an F-18 fighter jet visiting Lunken Airport on Wednesday, so you might see that in the sky, too.
