I live within earshot of ALL the noise going on around the airport this week as the 148th Fighter Wing conducts some training exercises.
I’m used to all the military fighters and other planes overhead, and I still enjoy looking up into the sky to see them.
But sometime last night, I groggily woke up to what sounded like bugles playing over a tornado siren. I wasn’t sure if I had been dreaming until just now, when (in a fully awake state) I heard it again – and it was clearly coming from over by the airport. I’d never heard it before last night.
The sound is a constant tornado siren noise, with a few overriding bursts of what sound like bugles playing a melody of 8-12 notes. The whole thing lasts maybe 45 seconds. I’d like to know what that sound signals to the military personnel. Does anyone out there know?
