    Glad it turned out relatively ok, although still not sure how many people were on the plane.....

    Glad all are OK. Can't tell from the angle. Is that on 08/26 or 14/32? Assume the latter...

    Tracking tanker traffic out of McClellan on Flight Aware and I see two blips with the little white profiles that look like F-16's callsigns "Vilan 51 and 52" from KRTS. They were north of Pyramid Lake between 150 and 180 making head on passes at each other.

    Never know what you will see.

    *something* has been going on for about two weeks now, regarding a LOT more military flights. Down at the coast, and at PDX, it's normally REALLY quiet but for a week or so (a week ago, I'm in Portland now) there was a LOT more afterburner music out over the ocean, up high. Once I came to Portland on Monday, I'm right under the flight path for PDX, there's a LOT of military traffic, more than just the normal Oregon Air National Guard daily practice stuff. I saw a flight of F-18's day before yesterday and this AM there were a ton of close sequential departures in afterburner..

    Must be a big exercise going on!

    I've been using Flight Aware for six years and I never remember being able to track military aircraft.

    You can use this link to follow military traffic. Hit the U button at the top and it will toggle the military traffic.
