C-130 from Fort Campbell Kentucky

The noise comes up from behind. It swells like a wave, passing over in a rumble that vibrates the back of my throat. I don’t see it until it is right overhead. It looks like it is brushing the tops of the trees. It is too big; it keeps passing, and passing. The mind can make no sense of what it is seeing. I’m holding my breath waiting for the sound of the impact as it explodes against the hillside. Nothing happens, the noise just recedes, fainter, until it is gone, and I remember to breathe.
