The guys in the northeast are getting a real treat tonight. Bunch of tankers out and about and the buffs are crossing over Boston and heading east.

Just noticed (2030L) on ADS-B that another B-52 (no call showing #60-0052 AE588E) is messing around off the NC coast probably in W50 & W122.

catch CAKE's when they rtb the USA prob on the semi-Polar route 100+ miles North of Quebec City.

Hey guys, long time no post...

I noticed that tonight there is an RO-6A. Us Army recon aircraft doing laps around South Jersey.

That aircraft is very interesting... it’s a spy plane.


I can’t help but wonder what it’s doing... two thoughts come to mind...
there might be a special forces team out training in the pine barrons tonight that they are watching over.. Ft Dix is out that way.

Another thought is that Tuckerton is a major landing point for trans Atlantic cables... could they be listening to something? They keep flying in straight lines over Tuckerton.
Happy Holidays!

0830- DeeCee 01 (KC-135R # 57-1479 AE0160 756th ARS) doing multiple approaches at ADW (125.65 & 118.4). Maybe the Sqdn Cmdr getting in some flight time? 0855- Now heading off to the northeast.

0858- Brave 01 & 02 (F-16s 121st FS DC ANG) land at ADW. Brave callsign usually denotes intercept training w/Huntress

There has been one up periodically for a few weeks. Usually they are doing perfect circles in the Harrisburg PA area also.

Did anyone hear any comments about this event? I would assume some pilots saw it.

One of the Buffs Cake 11 had an engine failure and is burning fuel for a few hours over England. Now there are 2 more Buffs that left Barksdale. I don't know if they are related.

Interesting flight for a VC-25 today...aborted trip, or a shakedown flight?
View attachment 94903
Both VC-25s will periodically go out as Venus 01 (82-8000) & Venus 02 (92-9000). These flights are for maintenance test, pilot familiarization flts to various area airports that could be potential diverts in case of emergencies or for crew training.
