Just curious if anyone on here might have any info on an aircraft with a hex of AE64D5? No callsign or registration shown, little to no history online that I found. Watching it out in California shadow AF1 on ADSBx and landed at Riverside while AF1 went into Long Beach.
I checked C-32s 0016 and 0017 in case they changed codes. Nope. 0017 did land at March AFB as well. It's certainly a jet of some sort. Unfortunately the LiveATC stream there is offline.

OTIS42 and OTIS01 were doing several flights between Cherry Pt and Ft Pickett around this time.
Yeah saw those guys airborne at the time but they were way Southwest of me and I was hearing
L+C here.I left out one important detail.. He called 643 "the other Hawkeye".
Checking numbers there is a E-2D #168599 with nose #642 from VAW-121 on Scramble.Assume a E-2D 643 around as well.
Maybe why they were not showing on mode s.

BTW RCH-337 C-5M departed McGuire overnight 0300z headed NE across the Pond..

There was a NORAD Falcon Virgo exercise around DC last night midnight to 2:30am.. Maybe they added contractor jets
as extra test of Capitol region tracking defenses?

Viper this morning with VTANG F-35s, KNIGHT 11, BRASS 21, HELLCAT 31. Active A-A frequencies 226.300, 226.800, 234.800, 261.800, 314.400, 349.700. KNIGHT and BRASS also working the Range with Barkeater on 244.500 and Trident on 226.900. KNIGHT had some sort of weapons malfunction and had to hold to troubleshoot, discussed possibly diverting to KGTB but seemed to have solved the issue and returned to KBTV.

The same aircraft from last night are entering the Capital region again. Is this still NORAD related? Looks like 10 aircraft doing orbits over Maryland, Virginia & West Virginia including a nearly 80 year old DC-3
