Yesterday (11/13) around 4:30 pm I saw a very low flying airplane flying right on top of the shoreline around access 5. I would estimate he was about 30 feet off the ground. It was surreal. Just wondering if anyone else saw it? I think the plane was red.

Are they still looking for that missing pilot from Corpus?

Could be a survey aircraft, could be doing animal or GOM research, Could be migratory bird studies, oilfield, coast guard auxiliary, civil air patrol, or a host of other possibilities. I'm not sure of the location you speak of, but there is nothing wrong, or illegal flying low in certain areas.

Some fisherman land on the beach, or spoil islands then wade fish. It is also possible that he thought he was having an issue and wanted to get down low in case he needed to land quickly. Sometimes it is fun flying low, other times not.


Anything is possible.

If there are any of Yall who are pilots, Id be willing to pitch in for fuel to take a ride along the shoreline. Sounds like fun.
