Yes, that was a low-flying plane you saw today over East Hartford and Middletown.

Pratt & Whitney flew its newly designed 747, which is in the final stages of testing, over its East Hartford and Middletown campuses as a form of celebration. 

The fly-bys occurred sometime around 4:15 p.m. in East Hartford and in Middletown at 4:30 p.m.

The plane  flew by at an altitude of 1,000 feet, according to the company.
