Circling Aircraft Prompted Gettysburg Hotel Evacuation
It was a dark and foggy
night over Gettysburg (PA) when, out of the gloom was heard the
persistent sound of a small aircraft flying low over downtown. In
earlier days, police might have turned on their overhead lights and
driven to the airport, in hopes the aircraft might follow. Early
Tuesday morning, officers instead evacuated the Gettysburg
"I thought it was just flying to the airport, but it just kept
circling and circling," said Police Chief Rolf Garcia in an
interview with the Gettysburg Times. He said the aircraft flew as
low as 150 feet for about two hours, before disappearing in the
misty dawn at about 6:30 AM local time.
As a result, hotel manager Phillip Murray evacuated 26 rooms on
the five-story building's top two floors.
The aircraft hasn't been heard from since. In Gettysburg, Chief
Garcia said no one on the ground could read the aircraft's
N-number. Attempts to contact the aircraft were met with silence.
There were no reports of downed aircraft or emergency landings
later in the day.
