BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - The Navy is investigating a military jet that zoomed frighteningly close this week over Berkeley’s homes and UC Berkeley.

Navy spokeswoman Lt. Reagan Lauritzen tells the Contra Costa Times (https://bayareane.ws/1LozMPl ) the investigation into the flyover is to ensure the pilot complied with all FAA and U.S. Navy regulations.

She says training missions in the area are common but the flyover sent Berkeley residents into a frenzy shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday. Several residents on Twitter reported that the loud, low-flying jet was noisy enough to set off car alarms, wake babies and scare office workers.

Officials say the jet traveled from Naval Air Station Lemoore, located southwest of Fresno, to the Bay Area and back.
