    Six Engine Propeller Plane?

    Wow, that is a gorgeous piece of footage! And is making me pretty certain that craft I saw at much higher altitude did indeed have 6 engines. Even at this low altitude the nacelles look “swooshed” together. They were definitely evenly spaced.

    It struck me as military but was too high to discern markings.

    Six Engine Propeller Plane?

    Re: above post, this is the photo that makes me NOT second guess what I saw. These are not equally space, and do not protrude the same. But it did seem like a transport craft, slow and heavy.

    Thank you for the comment, Erwin. I also appreciate the recent photo postings with the extra fuel nacelle shot from below. It does have me kind of second guessing if that’s what I saw. But memory is pretty clear of three nacelles equally placed along the wing, and equally long across it. I will know what to look for now, should I ever see it again!

    This one is what I’d like to see from below. Might just be it, but the on the one I saw, the six nacelles were equally spaced and sized... https://goo.gl/images/QAT3iM

    Six Engine Propeller Plane?

    I actually concur, but know I saw a big slow plane with at least four props. Have been trying to find a similar angled shot (from behind and below) of the suggested Lockheed AC-130, but none I’ve found have the clear delineation of three, and only three, nacelles if some kind below each wing...

    Six Engine Propeller Plane?

    Thank you for the feedback. I thought about trying to find a filed flight plan but have not yet been able to research. It flew over Pasadena CA City Hall heading west-NW at about 1:15 PM yesterday (Mon Jan 28). Will post back if I unearth anything!

    Six Engine Propeller Plane?

    Hello, newbie here but this entry came up after my search today and I have to jump in. (Too cool that it’s a 10+ year thread!) Was coming back from lunch in Pasadena, CA today and heard that unmistakable sounds of a low and slow prop plane. Immediately know it’s big for the sound, but the six engines were surprising. Double take. Stop and gape. Never seen anything like it. Dad was a private pilot and I grew up around aviation. I am certain the extra engines were NOT fuel nacelles; it was low enough to discern the blades. Or at least, to see all six were the same. Am so very puzzled and would welcome any additional thoughts! klf
