Low Flying Airplane

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has received several reports of a small yellow single occupant airplane flying low in the Barlow, Waterford and Beverly areas.

The plane is described as flying “aggressively” and almost “acrobatically”.

The Sheriff’s Office Dispatch center reached out to the Columbus FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). They have reviewed video and pictures sent to them of this airplane. They advised this is an agricultural plane that is most likely spraying local crop fields. Agricultural planes are known for low flying and tight turns to ensure they are treating the correct field.

The Columbus FAA advised anyone can contact their office with questions. Their direct number is 614-255-3120.

Thank you.
