As I was walking out to my car to get my lunch today, I noticed a plane coming in to land at the local airport. I only saw it from the side but I could tell it was a twin engine, twin tail aircraft, kinda resembling a B-24 or B-25 but not quite. It was painted all black. I'm sorry I cannot provide any more details but I only saw it for a couple seconds before it descended behind the trees. If anyone could provide any possibilities as to what it may be, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I've also seen a flight of 3 Chinooks fly over the school before, two black with a gold stripe down the side and one desert tan. I love the location of my school

These sound like Border Patrol craft. We have several that fly in Tucson. Most are Blackhawks though, never heard of BP Chinooks.

As for your mystery plane...kinda sketchy on details to make a guess.

If it was a tail dragger, maybe it was a Beech D-18.

I've done a Google search for aircraft movements at a particular airport and somebody somewhere will have made a note of it.

Longshot- Maybe a V-22 Osprey?

I did find an email address for the airport (West Memphis Municipal Airport) but nothing on aircraft movements. Planefinder.net wasn't any help either. The only two planes that show up at the time are both Fed Ex planes across the river coming in to Memphis International Airport. I sent an email to the airport and maybe they can provide me with the identity of the aircraft.
