    Don't be alarmed if you see a plane just like this one flying low over Dallas in the next 36 hours.

    Don't be alarmed if you see a plane flying low over Dallas in the next 36 hours.

    The Environmental Protection Agency says it will be conducting routine flights over the city just like before the Super Bowl.

    The EPA will obtain baseline air samples of central Dallas as part of preparations for the Dallas Mavericks' victory parade on Thursday.

    Thursday Was the Only Parade Option

    [DFW] Players Pumped for the Parade
    The Dallas Mavericks players are pumped up for the parade and Thursday was the only option for the championship celebration.

    The plane — flying between 500 and 2,800 feet at a speed of about 115 mph, which is like 15 mph for a car — will have markings on the wings that say "US" and "EPA."

    So don't be alarmed, don't call 911 and you don't need to call or email the TV stations, you heard it here first!
