• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Chimney Rock Rd & Running Deer Ranch area. SLO County new fire

Most afternoons around 4 or 5 I kill +/- an hour and a glass of wine out in the Think Tank, er, hot tub, and watch planes fly over. The last couple of days, I've seen an odd jet, low and slow, white over orange, go right over our house from the SW and turn north. No visible markings underneath, and I can't see the tail.

Finally, I noticed the pod on the belly and figured out is was one of the DC-10 tankers fighting the Chimney fire out of the Santa Maria Airport.

Here's a link to a SLOStringer tweet with some awesome footage of Tanker 911 making a run yesterday... from ABOVE the drop!
