KSDM/Brown Field 1 Dec VMFT-401 F-5s

Went down to Brown Field to try and get the rest of the Top Aces Alpha Jets. Missed the Alphas, AND missed the F-5s landing. However, they pulled up to the transient ramp and so did a fuel truck. After they got gas, they took off and flightaware showed them offshore, probably flying vs Lincoln. US M...

Re: KNZY/NAS North Island Fall 2021 Civ Aggressor

THE HOUSEGUESTS THAT JUST WOULDN'T LEAVE! I'm pretty sure the first day the Villain jets showed up was November 10th. VFA-204 flew in around the 13-14th. I spent a week on the beach chasing them, and then left town for a week, assuming everybody would be gone by the time I got back. I was wrong. The...

KNZY/NAS North Island Fall 2021 Civ Aggressor

10 Nov F-5 just flew past the living room window. Checking ADSB-Exchange showed Villain 11, N617TA. Where there is one Villain there are always more. Lincoln left port last week and is offshore, so I am sure that's why the F-5s are down from Reno. More numbers as I catch them. Tactical Air Support '...

Re: Breeder's Cup Arranges FedEx charters--Air Horse One unlikely

Yeppers, it was A6-GGP. Always nice to see the Queen of the Skies at KSAN. After landing they immediately unloaded some air freight containers out the side cargo door, had to be horses. Getting a good, unobstructed view of the north side cargo area is a bit tricky, so I didn't catch where the scisso...

Re: Breeder's Cup Arranges FedEx charters--Air Horse One unlikely

Looks like the Sunday flight will be FDX9750, using a 767-300. Too bad, I was hoping for a FedEx 777, we don't normally get those here. Maybe the Monday flight from Indianapolis will use one. HHmmm, what's this, a flight listed as "Dubai Airwing 8" enroute from London/Stansted, arriving 1:10p local ...
