    I see them on National Holidays in the summer a lot, when the do air shows around town. Particularly on Memorial Day, I see plenty of fighter jets. My view is south towards downtown and it’s cool to see the fighter jets whiz by the high-rises.

    Occasionally, I’ll see them on non-holidays when the Air Force is doing training or homeland security stuff.

    I used to work with a woman who lived in Sterling Heights by Selfridge and she used to tell me stories about them flying by very very frequently.

    i grew up just about a mile from the back gate to Selfridge so i was very used to them pretty much every day. what freaked me out was when i saw a couple of those crazy “stealth” jets flying around the area the day before the All Star game last year. they appeared as if from no where and were gone just as quick without a sound. very UFO-ish.

    I noticed them a few nights ago, too, from my balcony on the East riverfront. I have been seeing a lot more private planes lately, as well. It appears that the private planes are coming to/from City Airport, but I’m not sure.
