Introduction

As an aviation enthusiast, I enjoy observing the sky whenever I engage in outdoor activities. I love tracking commercial airplanes flying over the area to identify their type, route, and flight metrics. Yesterday, I was able to observe two planes flying parallel (not very common), each leaving a contrail. Immediately, my curiosity kicked in, and I opened my flight radar application to learn more details and metrics.

They were two private jets, one being a #Bombardier Challenger 350, flying at 43,000 feet barometric altitude with a ground speed of 321 knots, while the other, another Bombardier Challenger 650, was cruising at an altitude of 38,000 feet at a speed of 321 knots on the ground. These flight metrics are collected through IoT sensors and stored in real-time, ready to be analyzed. The coincidence that caught my attention is that both private jets belonged to the same manufacturer, shared the same speed, and had taken off from the same city, Houston headed to California. My speculative hypothesis suggests that these two private jets might have been transporting football fans back home after attending the (NCAA) American Football Championship held last Monday, January 9th.
