Skywatch Friday

On Memorial Day, this huge aircraft (C-5 Galaxy?)
was spotted in the sky.
Not sure why they picked our neighborhood
to do a flyover...
San Ramon, CA
(5/30/11)

You've captured the plane beautifully. I've never had much success doing that.

Big planes flying over my house always causes me a little tension. Bet this one made a lot of noise.
