The HH-65 flies over my house quite often.

I spotted Obama's heli (Marine One), another Sea King?, and a Chinook. They were heading back to O'Hare Intl. where Air Force One was parked.

I was at the ft worth air power expo 2011 today, aside from what you would usually see at an air show, NAS ft. worth JSB is also home to the f-35 testing faculty.
while the f-35 was not on display at the show itself a "test stand" variant was visible on the other side of the main runway I got two pictures of it but both came out very blury.

Wow...that's a lot of aircraft.

I saw an F-16 just randomly out here in the middle of nowhere.
