Flying at night. Loud. Black until opens wings, revealing a solid orange torso. Is this a hornet? Twice larger and thinner than any hornet I’ve seen.
This is NOT a hornet. It is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, and though your image lacks critical sharpness, it appears to be a Brown Prionid. More images are available on BugGuide.
