Lots of residents throughout Cumberland and Dauphin counties said on social media that they saw low-flying aircraft with bright lights Wednesday night. So, is an alien invasion upon us?
Probably not, and here’s why.
Dauphin County emergency dispatchers told PennLive they did not get any reports related to UFOs or flying objects. Dispatchers in Cumberland County reported low-flying military aircraft Wednesday night but got no calls about unusual flying objects.
A C-5M Super Galaxy – the United States Air Force’s largest aircraft – took off from Dover Air Force Base in Delaware at 7:49 p.m. and flew northwest to the Harrisburg area, where it circled several times, before returning to the Air Force base at an undetermined time, according to RadarBox, an online flight tracker.
Although the C-5M that was flying over central Pa. Wednesday evening did not land in the area, Harrisburg International Airport has served as a practice runway for military aircraft in the past.
Dover Air Force Base houses the Department of Defense’s largest aerial port and has approximately 11,000 Airmen, joint service members, civilians and families, according to their website.
