I had presumed it was WVANG out of Yeager in Charleston.
But it was definitly a C-141 jumped out of enough of them to know. ;)

Yesterday saw a C-130 and two T-38s. I live in between Beale, Travis and the one in Navada, AFB. I see fighters all the time.

Went to the Luke AFB 70 years of Thunder, I saw F-22 Demo, F/A-18E Demo, A-10 Demo, F-4s, A German Tornado, F-15s, E-8, E-3, B-52, B-1B, RQ-1, C-130, C-17, Extra 300, S-1, and the USAF Thunderbirds. It was very fun to see.

Should have put these up last week. Sorry for the delay.

2X Tornado Gr4 at low level. 1X Tornado (type unknown) at about 10.000ft.
All last Thursday 17th March.
Get the ocasional low level stuff, as the village where I live is on the edge of a low flying transit corridoor.
Expect to see BBMF at least once this year, as they do flypasts at some events at Santa Pod dragstrip. That's only three miles from where I live.
Fliped out of the arena, again! :(

Probably heading for the action in Libya were four Typhoons and a C-130 Hercules.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Saw a lovely C-17 Globemaster III while outside today - it was flying a bit lower then they usually do around here. Too bad I didn't have my camera handy.

A Single UH-60 Blackhawk flew over my school. I couldn't tell what variant it was, but it was heading towards an Army Airbase, so I thought it was a UH-60M.

Spotted a few planes this weekend, the standouts were an Alaskan Airlines 737 and a Coast Guard HH-65 Dolphin.
