9/18-9/21 Low Flying Plane

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has been advised by Heritage Co-Op that they will be having a low flying mostly yellow (with some blue) plane in the county. This will be Wednesday September 18 through Saturday September 21.

It may be seen all over Washington County and some in the surrounding counties. The plane is dropping seed in fields for crops and at times could be as low as 20 feet off of the ground. This is normal and how they are trained to operate.

The plane will be taking off from the Palmer Square area and will mainly be seen in Little Hocking, Barlow, Waterford/Watertown and SR 676 areas.

This office received numerous calls in reference to a low flying plane of this type in the past and there were concerns of safety with the plane flying so low near houses. If any concerns should arise please contact the Columbus Federal Air Administration, 614-255-3120. Thanks!!
