Waukon residents spot low-flying plane Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
WAUKON (KWWL) - If you were in Waukon Tuesday evening around 6:15 p.m., you may have wondered about a large passenger jet plane that circled overhead.

The Federal Aviation Administration's public affairs office said Wednesday morning it had received no word of a plane crash or low-flying plane in that area.

The FAA public affairs official said people who spot a low-flying plane or have other aviation-related concerns can report what they see to the FAA's Flights Standards Iowa Office, which is in Des Moines.

The FAA public affairs official said although it's not confirmed, the low-flying plane over Waukon could have been a result of a flight diverted from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, which was experiencing major delays Tuesday and re-routing flights due to smoke at an FAA radar facility.
