Loud Rumble Across Dodge County Skies Likely Caused By Fighter Jets

(Beaver Dam) Around 3pm Tuesday, Dodge County residents looked upwards after a loud rumble roared across the skies. While the clouds obscured the view, Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt says the noise was likely caused by fighter jets from Madison’s Truax Field which serves as an Air National Guard Base. Schmidt says while flyovers are routine, he was not aware if the military had scheduled any specific training missions in Dodge County air space. He says local law enforcement is not usually notified of any planned military operations in the area.
