November 16, 2016: Response from MCAS Miramar Public Affairs Office, 858-577-6000, about the incident on November 15 at approx 9:36 PM:
The aircraft under speculation was an Air Force C-17. Based off the safest form of approach aircraft may land using a pattern that takes them in a different direction; they can come in for approach from west to east or east to west. Last night the aircraft landed heading west to east, which may have caused a spike in noise concerns. Wind patterns and equipment aboard the aircraft dictate what pattern will be used for safest approach and landing. All aircraft aboard MCAS Miramar adhere to the regulations and standards set forth by the FAA. No aircraft have deviated from the approved flight paths.

On October 7, 2016, University City resident Ron Belanger was interviewed by CBS 8.
A deadly military jet crash devastated a University City neighborhood eight years ago, and on Friday there are major questions after a Miramar jet was spotted flying low over the very same area.
The MCAS Miramar jet was flying so low a photographer was able to use his iPhone to record the low fly-by.
University City resident Ron Belanger, a retired Naval aviator, ran out of his house when he heard the F-18 – fearing it would crash.

2016 Miramar Air Show pics and videos, courtesy of Ron Belanger at email@example.com:
The 2016 MCAS Miramar Air Show took place the last weekend of September. Each year people in my neighborhood get a front row seat to watch the aerial performances.
The Blue Angels (and other aerial performers) fly over University City. This year they were a bit higher and slower than previously but still very impressive.
We also got to see the USMC F-35 performing. I put together a short album of pics and videos. Feel free to download them. Of course, I retain commercial rights to them.
