This Just In

I just witnessed a jumbo jet fly over Smithers with six escorts (three on either side). It figures the ONE time I do not have my camera with me something out of the ordinary would take place.

Anyone have any ideas what is going on? I haven't heard about any air shows in the area.

They weren't flying very high, but were high enough that I couldn't really see the escorts. But I definitely saw the big plane. It was substantially larger than the others, like a 747 passenger plane. All seven planes left a white smoke trail behind them, so it's not like they were hiding.

I bet it was Air Force One flying to Northern BC. Bush and Cheney are probably going to do some fishin'.
