    I heard a jet take off and head west the other morning as I was walking into work from the garage. Never heard a jet in that area before, and it was in a big hurry (there is a difference in sound between a heavy and light jet although the fighters are smaller they can make a lot of noise).

    I assumed it was a jet from the Air Show in Hillsboro but it seemed strange to me that it was over downtown Portland - seemed too far east.

    I used to hear that a lot when I lived in the Seattle area - several times a year a fighter would take off in a big hurry heading west. Always assumed it was an interceptor.
