I am assuming the best place to find their frequencies would be under Atlantic City airport military frequencies?

Go to the Atlantic County DB page, click on airports. Some of the NJ NG mil air frequencies are listed there. I believe that is where the planes will be taking off from. There is another webpage that has a great list of mil air frequencies for the northeast region of the US. If I find it, I will post the link.

But this flyover is not the Blue Angels or TBirds. It is the NJ ANG. (The 108th and 177th Wing)

I live right near Kean University, so I will let you know if I pick up anything or close-call anything.

Here are some I would scan for the 177th air-to-air: (not including ATC frequencies)
261.0
138.05 am
138.10 am
138.125 am
138.30 am
138.425 am
140.10 am
140.175 am
140.70 am
288.70
295.40

Tanker interplane
139.875 am
143.825 am
268.025

They could really end up anywhere. There are a lot of nationwide A/A commons.

Did anyone pick them up on any frequencies today? They flew right over me, but did not pick anything up. I am also scanning all Mil Air bands and nothing so far. Disappointed!

That's awesome Justin. I guess they came farther south than the map originally showed. I heard some roars overhead but I was on a conference call at the time and didn't head out to see if it might have been them.

Yeah all the moaning about them leaving Cape May out of the flight path must have gotten to the powers that be and they changed they minds. The original flight plan was they weree going to turn around up at Cape May Courthouse b y the hospital. Guess they changed their minds

Yeah, really makes me wonder what freqs they were using since no one seemed to pick anything up. Perhaps 40 MHz band or shortwave?

T he only frequency that popped for me was 252.8000, which was the air-to-air channel! I also think since they weren't up there for too long, they didn't need to refuel mid-air, so even though the tanker was in the air I didn't hear him. It was neat to see but the monitoring wasn't the same as last week
