Update:  
The jet that was flying around the area earlier today is a MIG-21 that is based out at the Rockford Airport. It is privately owned. 

More about the MIG-21 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoyan-Gurevich_MiG-21

Rockford Scanner fan Tommy Kronas: That is a MIG and it is a privately owed plane. It is a show plane and has dummy missiles. Seen that around locally a few years.

Several Rockford Scanner fans have said they heard a military jet in the Rockford area.  At the time of writing this, it is not known what type of jet is making the noise.

We can confirm there is a BlackHawk helicopter to the north, near the Beloit area, approx. 4000 feet.

But fans are saying this is a military jet, like a fighter plane. So it is not known if there are 2 different military aircraft in the area, or just the one.

If you have information or photos/video, please email us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


Update: The fans are certain it is a military jet fighter. One fan is reporting they saw 2 jets.

The FAA is also in town, they arrived just before noon. But their aircraft is a Bombardier Global 5000, not something that resembles a jet fighter.

It may be possible, there is a high profile person in town (Politician, celebrity, etc…)   that we do not yet know about that flew in.

If you have any information or photo/video, please contact us
