Many people in Spartanburg Co., SC were wondering why military planes were flying low over the area on Sunday.
A lot of people posted pictures to our Facebook page asking about it.
Turns out it was a NC Air Guard celebrating the Carolina Panther’s season.
Charlotte Fire Communciations post this to their Facebook page:
