Low-flying planes seen all over North Carolina and Virginia

Last night 9 On Your Side received reports about a large group of low-flying planes that were seen in several counties. One viewer counted 19 ‘bomber' planes flying over Grimesland in Pitt County.

These aircraft were also spotted in Virginia and in Central North Carolina as well. Our CBS affiliate WFMY reports that planes were seen in Guilford, Alamance, Rockingham, and Stokes County.

WFMY also reports that the Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point told them a large exercise was being conducted.

Our CBS affiliate in Roanoke Virginia reported that The Roanoke Regional Airport told them 19 C-130 planes flew over their region Monday evening.
