C-32B 02-5001 departed ADW about 2110. Callsign is DOTTY90. Looks like it may have come into KADW around 2030 local. Heading SW.

118.95>121.675>133.725>127.925

2137- 133.575> ZTL 124.425

Default F-22 Article

Guys,

Got this from another list:


HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - Some of the nation's 200 F-22 Raptor pilots want to be moved into other jobs because of oxygen-deficit problems with the stealth fighter, an Air Force leader said Monday.

Gen. Mike Hostage, commander of Air Combat Command at Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Va., told reporters that a "very small" number of pilots have asked not to fly the fifth-generation fighter jets or to be reassigned.

"Obviously it's a very sensitive thing because we are trying to ensure that the community fully understands all that we're doing to try to get to a solution," Hostage said.

He did not provide exact figures on the number of pilots who have asked to not fly the jets and said each pilot's request would be handled individually.

Air Force officials believe the airplane is safe to fly - Hostage noted that he'll fly soon because he won't ask a pilot to do something that he will not.

"I'm going to check out and fly the airplane so I can understand exactly what it is they're dealing with. The day we figure out what the problem is I will stop flying (the plane) because we don't have enough sorties for all of our combat aviators to get as much training as they need," he said.

The nation's F-22 fighter jets were grounded for four months last year after pilots complained of experiencing a lack of oxygen that can cause dizziness and blackouts. Air Force officials said they have taken steps against the problem, but still haven't pinpointed what's causing the hypoxia-like symptoms. Hypoxia is when the body doesn't receive enough oxygen.

An Air Force panel is meeting weekly to investigate the problem and has enlisted the help of NASA and the Navy to learn more about what happens to the body under extreme conditions, among other things.

Hostage spoke during a media day event at the base, highlighting the nation's most advanced fighter plane. After being introduced in 2005, the last of nearly 190 jets are scheduled to be delivered to the Air Force this week.

At a price tag of $143 million each, the Raptor has come under some criticism for not being used in place of older and less-sophisticated jets in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Hostage said the plane is critical to maintaining the nation's air superiority in the future and that he wishes he had more of the jets at his disposal. On Monday, Iran's defense minister said that reports of the stealth fighter jet being deployed to the United Arab Emirates would damage regional security, the semiofficial ISNA news agency reported.

Without saying which country in the region the F-22s were deployed to - or which base or bases they were deployed from - Hostage said there's a reason other nations take note of the plane's movements.

"People pay attention to where this airplane goes and what it does because, regardless of the furor in our press and public about the suitability or the safety of the airplane, they're very worried about its capability. That, to me, means we're on the right path with this capability," he said.

The planes are stationed at five other bases besides Virginia: Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska; Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii; Nellis Air Force Base, Nev.; Holloman Air Force Base, N.M.; and Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla.

1449 EDT- Have unid acft (Little Bird) working on 267.35 FM w/Blue Box???? Chatting about following a vehicle headed south on Interstate 81.

1456 EDT- Now have Colby 13 (unid) working on 118.95. Any idea who is using this callsign? The only equation I have for Colby callsign is F-16s from the Wisconsin ANG at Madison---Colby 11 earlier and now Colby 13 don't sound like F-16s

I see that Obama showed up in Afghanistan unannounced. A few days I saw some odd activity that had me thinking there might just be such an occurrence. It wasn't his flight but it may have been related. Showed an ID of S153. See he was schedule to be in DC on Monday for the Japanese PM, I dismissed it.

Early this morning I logged some unid hex codes that correspond to an ADW departure. They were using RCH callsigns. How long does it take to get to Afghanistan?



Any mention of altitudes for the COLBY flight?


I think this thing might be Mil related. Quite a flight.
FlightAware > N8300L


The same company has this RC/MC-12 type also. N45E

My only time getting it on mode-S was April 7 with a callsign of TANK74.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of their other Beech 200s get the same makeover.

I logged N40Y as PAT528 last August, June and prior it was N40Y.

In the Air Force, Raptor versus Talon isn't much of a contest, but it is still good for training purposes, pilots say - Daily Press

I noticed 3 fake flights ID's overhead the Netherlands which might be POTUS related:

AE47C8 RCH373
AE2FCE RCH507
AE2FFE NO ID

And the backup plane for POTUS, ADFDE2 C-20C 85-0049, landed and departed Ramstein ETAR

The AE47C8 RCH373 and AE2FCE RCH507 are currently (06:15 GMT) overhead Germany, I presume heading CONUS for KADW

Yes, backup plane for POTUS, C-20C 85-0049 normally hexcode ADFDE2, c/s SAM 153 was burning fake hexcode AE2FFE for Afghanistan mission. AF1 and SAM44 switched hexcode while overhead south of UK earlier today.

Thank you Rene for the follow up on this flight. Figured they went to Moron since there were no logs in the Northern route.

Hi Ed,

A good friend corrected me, they were 4FW F-15s out of Seymour, not F-16s...... sorry.

"Pilots who encroach on Federal Aviation Administration-issued temporary flight restrictions during the G-8 summit will not be immediately shot down."

I swear....that's what the article says...

Guys,

1503 EDT- Have Colby 12 up (118.95) just off Andrews. Definitely not a fighter. So far I've heard Colby 11, 12 & 13 in the last week.

1546 EDT- Have Colby 12 working on Wash Helo (134.35) departing ADW and requesting VFR clearance over to Salisbury.

So looks like the Colby ## calls are helos of some sort. The only helo unit I know of at ADW is the 1st Helo Sqdn who have always used the Mussel callsign.
