got the frequencies that will be in use?
Hopefully one of our Charlotte listeners will be able to help us out on the common A-A freqs they use, since they are based in Charlotte. RR Wiki lists the following for the 145th.

138.200 A-A
292.250 CP
376.025 A-A

and the NCNG (not 145th) is listed as 242.200 for A-A

well i sure am glad i decided to check this one last time today. i would be even gladder if they would be flying somewhere i could see em... oh well.

and just fyi i would put my money on 376.025 as the inflight A2A. that 138.2 freq i have been listening for 5 years and heard not a peep on, by anyone.

now what i find most interesting is:

"These flyovers will incur no additional cost to the taxpayers and are being conducted as part of regularly scheduled training."

so that means the making and posting of that very nice flight plan graphic, times and directions yadda yadda, shouldn't add any cost burden to do, oh i dunno, say, for any/all of their training flights? am i right here?

there has got to be some way we can use this little nugget to petition them to continue posting such nice items, whadda ya say folks?

also sua.faa.gov shows IR721 is listed for tonight from 2000-2100h local if anyone cares. Half the time its one or more of the 145th making the run.

Curious about timing on the flight path, 50 minutes from Charlotte to Ashville but only an hour from Ashville to Raleigh? Distance appears to be double and there are 16 locations on the way to Raleigh that are getting flyovers. Going to be flying fast and furious.

There was a thread a while back when they did the max flight for the retirement of the C-130s... there might be some more frequencies buried in there.

The 145th ANG has announced they will be using a C-17 aircraft like the one seen below. Shouldn't be too hard to see this. Also, if they are flying solo, don't expect too much in the way of comms. You might want to listen to 123.025 and 123.050, common air to air around cities when aircraft flying over, as well as local ATC/airport freqs.

Right before they took off, they said they are not passing out oranges? And just now, someone hit their emergency button on their radio... I was not able to catch the RID before someone cleared it.

I assume it's a single ship so no A/A? I was on a work call and missed them departing the CLT area. can anyone confirm?

Single ship so likely no air to air comms. Low altitude & VFR means you will hear them on VHF approach frequencies in controlled airspace and that's about it.

I don't believe ECHO 1 is related to the flyover.

npr used the singular when describing the flight so seems like a single.

They are on VIPER ECHO 1 right now saying they have 3 minutes. Then the Sgt Maj said, "Let's rock-n-roll!"

hmmmm, isn't it a bit early in the day to starting drinking? they're clearly having more fun than is generally considered proper.

wasn't even thinking about VIPER, lets keep a list here of TGs RIDs and any freqs involved here how bout it? even if its just contact with a tower on VHF etc. all info can be helpful in future situations.

Going to be flying fast and furious.
just the way Ares intended. if farmers ain't complaining about their cows giving spoiled milk, well you just ain't flying right.

Echo 1 has been quiet since they took off. It sounds like they were setting up some sort of meal for afterwards? Hearing the on 135.050 and 119.350 right now.
