A flight of 4 F15 jets out of CA ANG Fresno will tour the state in a salute to health care workers. You may hear activity on these air-air freqs that they use:
225.3, 226.225, 240.175, and 256.25. They will roll north out of FAT, head to SAC, then the Bay Area, MRY before heading to SoCal. Here is a link to the schedule-

It's been canceled. Looks like the T-Birds will be here Friday instead.

UPDATE: SoCal leg canceled only. NorCal is still a go.......

We don't need your stinky SoCal germs getting on our planes during a low fly by. :p

Joking aside, I am fortunate that I get to enjoy watching their frequent really low training over the Fresno airport tarmac and hard G vertical pull while sitting at my desk. I must say as a mil-air listener, being told the new office site as well as my personal office will have a front row seat, well...it's been really fun the last seven years.
What? Are we like chopped liver down here in SoCali?

Last Saturday Beale AFB had a T-38 4-jet formation fly from Oroville to Vacaville and Sac area. This Friday the 15th they will be flying a northern circuit up to Redding and working down from there through Chico, Auburn, Placerville, Nevada City etc. Info here 9th RW Salute to Northern California with flyover May 15

Not sure what A-A they'd be on, but I'd expect the ROPER or SLATE callsign on at least ZOA UHF low 350.3 for Redding/Red Bluff/Chico.

Fresno ANG is using 225.300 MHz for general A-A chatter while they take pictures of each other during flight and coordinate maneuvers etc. It will be interesting get an idea how well my system at home will be able to monitor based on their distance and altitude.

Oh, the old north south California battle. For 40 years my late Hubby and I lived in a Sierra Nevada foothill county. He grew up in L.A. and wanted out of that megalopolis and didn't want to live anywhere urban. We didn't know which side to take, so we didn't. There are wonderful people from all over California and we enjoyed living in an area where they came for much needed vacations.
