also arriving...

N350XJ 'Arcat 75' Bombardier CL 300 registration General Atomics, flew in from Gillespie (KSEE) and returned to same later in day.

Special bonus points to Navy Growlers for flying their entire landing pattern and never once crossing LV Blvd higher than Gate 2 at the Speedway. USAF- Gate 4. RAF/RAAF/USMC F-35B-- gate 3. But the Navy was consistently hitting gate 2 and the Raven's CAG was about 1 1/2, maybe 1 3/4.

Mostly Flex West take offs Monday AND Tuesday, which was cause for much rejoicing in the peanut gallery.

Wednesday report:

Ha ha, after I comment on flex departures, yesterday the dreaded 'Fighter 6' departure was mostly in use.

Launch AND recovery on runway 3.

'KING 82' a HC-130J from 79th RQS, Davis Monthan landed in the middle of the recovery. Due to their approach almost down the middle of Cheyenne, I'm not sure if I have any numbers.

I'm not saying I don't take any photos of jets on a FYTTR departure, but it certainly isn't as dramatic as Flex West.
