Did anyone happen to see the odd shaped plane flying around this evening about 7:30-8:00? I was at Lochmere playing tennis and it was the oddest shaped plane I have ever seen. It almost looked like a butterfly shape. The front was a short V and the body/wings were an X. It seemed to be flying slowly and did 2 circular passes overhead. It was very large, like a passenger plane, definitely not a drone.

Anyone?

I am guessing it is some sort of military plane, just looked odd.

Maybe, but the nose of the plane was lit up in a V shape. The back of the plane looked somewhat similar. There were lights around most of the plane, so you could see the outline of it pretty well.
