A-10a's of the 172nd TFW ANG flew over my schools football field at 500ft. They are so silent on their approach but man are they loud when they pass over

You'll love this VNAF: More A-10's flew over, along with 3 F-16's and a C-130. All in one day, over my school football field again today. 8-)

Alright guys a mystery:

On Tuesday, several military jets flew over my school, I caught a glimpse and a friend of mine who saw it better says that it was delta winged with no canards.
Anyone else see anything?

Saw a Shadow R1 taking off from Northolt this morning, strange because normally it's Islanders.
And Phoenix, I was going to say Typhoon until you said no canards so I have no idea.

Quite a lot today, a Gulfstream G650 on approach to land followed by an Islander AL.1 ten minutes later. Five minutes later two BAE 125's flew over in formation. Then it was the Police EC-135 hovering near the high street.

On my flight aboard a RAAF King Air 350 in and out of RAAF TVL I saw a flight of Hornets parked down at the fastjet hangars.

I saw a whole bunch of stuff at the Andrews Joint Service Open House today. The highlight? An unannounced flypast by F-35C CF-02.

Bombcat,

I heard about that! Hope you had a good time. My friend Rob Rieder, air show announcer extraordinaire got pretty excited. He does a great job! Hope you enjyoed the F-15E Demo Team as well.

Bombcat you are one very lucky guy! I think I want to make Andrews sometime this year and I'll remember that flypast.
