Speaking of c130s. The ones based locally are still out in afganistan for another month. Hopefully they extend their stay a tad more so we can get that runway at OQU painted.

Wow. How many are out there? An acquaintance of mine just came back from overseas. But the NG C130s stayed over with the California ones too.

Anywho this beautiful fella landed last week but was busy clearing for him so couldn't snap a pic of it landing.

Very well kept!

Let's see, aircraft I spotted today at OUN, in the outdoor observation area just outside the small terminal:

- 3 Beechcraft Super King Air 350s
- About a dozen Cessna Citations (Sovereigns, IIIs, Vs and possibly a X)
- Some Westwind 24s
- A Gulfstream I
- Some King Air 90s
- A Bombardier Challenger 300
- A Falcon 7
- Several Learjets (45XRs and 75s)
- An Embraer Phenom 100
- Some Pilatus Turbos
- Some TBMs
- A couple Piaggio Avantis
- Several more smaller aircraft like Mooneys, Pipers, a couple 172s thrown in just for kicks (ok, not just for kicks, they came in for the OU-Ohio State game but you get the idea)

To add to the excitement, a storm went up northwest of Norman and started putting out plenty of CGs. To say it was awesome just standing outside with aircraft landing and bolts of lightning in the distance would be an understatement. When I left OUN to go back home, there were about 30 or so business aviation aircraft of all shapes, sizes and ranges sitting on the ramp in front of the terminal and on the secondary ramp to the southwest of the terminal (well over a billion dollars of aviation I saw up close and personal). They had to move all of the OU Flight School Piper Warriors and Cessnas into hangars (I presume) to make way for all of the arriving jets and props. On my way back home (I live about 10 minutes from the airport), I was still seeing aircraft arriving over the city. What a great day! :D

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN OKC, I landed AT OKC. On the other hand, I did land in Oklahoma City.

IMAGES FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY

I usually whip out my phone too late, so I just enjoy the planes flying over.

Went to college to meet up with friends for lunch, spotted:

X2 Firefly ATRs
X1 Raya Airways 757 (Might have been the same one I spotted some time ago)
X1 C130 (I reckon it's RMAF but I was driving home and couldn't spot markings)

I saw a C-130 as usual, and several Black Hawks. Also, there was an aircraft which looked like Mirage F-1, but there should be no Mirages flying in California...

I guess it could be F-104...

Saw this Chinook later flying with the Singapore flag hanging from its fuselage.
+ 6x F-15SGs taking off from Paya Lebar Air Base for the parade rehearsal. Too far away for a decent shot tho :(

Didn't get photo's, but the CWH Lancaster was doing its rounds in Niagara Falls yesterday. Plus the MD 500C's from the Niagara Falls Helo Tours on their side were pretty busy yesterday as well

Since the hurricane I've seen the Hurricane Hunter C-130, a few Blackhawks, Seahawks, two Apache Deltas, numerous Chinooks, MD-500s (police units), a couple of MH-53M Pave Lows, Coast Guard and ICE C-130s, both LifeFlight EC-145 and just one helicopter I could not identify. Possibly another EC-145 but could not see where it was headed nor livery it had.
