Planning to be over the metro area from 5:18-5:33 Wed evening. No flight path given like with the T-Birds, but the list hits just about every hospital in the area, Amazon warehouses, Mile High and Coors, State Capitol and Cherry Creek Reservoir. Published info states starting in Greeley at 4:35 and ending in Co Spgs about 5:45. They have the disclaimer of times might vary by 15 mins. Link to the FB page w/ info : 140th Wing

I found this thread from 2005 that Erik, ABQSCAN was kind enough to list out all his MilAir freq's (AM mode) for Colorado.

Well, the HTs were silent during this. I had my 780 searching the 138-144 band, but it was upstairs connected to the external antenna, so I don't know if it caught anything. Anyone get any good freqs out of this?

No Joy either. Only comms I heard was KCOS departure announcing VHF/UHF freq's for KPUB approach and a traffic advisory.

I never heard any interplane, a friend told me he heard air to air traffic on 360.750 as well Approach/Departure. I was out on Hwy 128 west of McCaslin and caught the PAFB C-130s Summit 71 & 72 as they flew up the west side of the Metro Area. I had just arrived and didn't have my camera out so my shots of the C-130s was less than impressive. I set up at 120th Ave & I-25 in the Park & Ride for the F-16s. Weather was less than impressive but I did squeeze off a couple of shots.
