Did other edhat readers see the large jet that flew fairly low over downtown Santa Barbara around 8:10 p.m. on Tuesday? Does anyone know anything about it?

Large Jet Over Santa Barbara?

One flight approach to SB airport is over the spine of the Mesa. I believe there is an aviation navigation radio beacon near TV hill, but may be wrong about that. Airplanes are supposed to maintain at least 1000ft from ground but they often fly much lower.

Large Jet Over Santa Barbara?

As of the beginning of June, United is flying both A319s and A320s into Santa Barbara. What you saw was UA2389 from Denver, an A319. The A320 from SFO arrives at Midnight daily. Alaska will begin flying 737s into Santa Barbara in late August.
