On Tuesday, Berkeley residents (including me!) were startled to hear the loud roar of an F-18 on full afterburner flying low over the city.
The jet triggered car alarms, upset dogs, disrupted hot yoga classes, and just generally freaked everyone out.
On Berkeleyside.com, someone calling himself "TheCulprit" posted that the pilot was his brother.
"It was an awesome personal air show," he wrote.
Berkeleyside confirmed the commenter attends UC Berkeley, and his brother is a pilot with the U.S. Navy stationed at LeMoore NAS.
"TheCulprit" said by email that his brother "is moving to Texas at the end of the week so he thought it would be cool to fly over campus while I was there before he left. Not that much to the story unfortunately."
The Navy is investigating.
