Al 4 tankers look inbound Pease AFB right now :) All dropping down. Good guess!
Mandatory 17 hour crew rest could be back up at 8am Sunday.. Or Monday :(
Charleston once again delayed now has 4 C-17's to Dyess Sunday.
McGuire has flight to Orland Norway Monday evening... Will keep an ear out..
Couple McGuire VINYL tankers enroute Travis tonight. VINYL 71,81. Prob have to go to
Guam and pickup the recent participants of Pacific exercise.. Prob those Alaska F-35's.

Off topic but saw on news a Boeing 777-200 out of Denver for Hawaii blew engine parts
all over Denver suburbs.. A pax on board took this engine video.. Yikes. Would make certain body parts pucker up.
Plane experiences engine trouble and drops debris over Colorado, lands safely | Fox News

OT watching KPHL traffic backup thru Delaware/South Jersey trying to land PHL.
I kept hearing jets from time to time in my area all spinning around to join South Jersey Conga line into PHL.
Philly apch South 119.750 who is setting them up is extremely busy. Some pilots complaining low on fuel.
AAL23 just said we are diverting to Baltimore. I'm sure pax are thrilled by that coming home from the Virgin Islands.
Airlines are at fault as they load just enough fuel at times to make dest so if delayed got to divert.
AAL597 in from St Martin did only one zig zag and cleared into line. I think AAL23 was being testy and bugged out.
Conga line thinning out a bit.

2010 local BOXER 903 B737/C40 #02-0203 coming East to Andrews from Dallas/Ft Worth.
Guess FEMA and other govt types on board.

Saw article yesterday that some homeowners in Texas used their new Ford F-150's with optional Gen installed.
Generates 6.5KW of power so parked in drive way and plugged cords into outlets in back of truck bed and into their homes :)
Ford gonna sell a lot of them now down Texas way..

21:30 - Probably not related to the B-1s but there is KC-10 from Travis (KSUU) about to land at Cannon (KCVS), callsign GUCCI 60. Staging ?

Finally a C-17 going from KCHS to Dyess this morning RCH202 #10-0222.
Thought Winter may be over by the time the B-1's make Norway :)
There is a AR-20 NE Res for Sunday night 0030z-0130z or 7:30PM local at FL200-220
but now also a AR-20-SW Res for 0130z so looks like local training A/R flight perhaps instead.
That could be for anything though and not related but will see what shows.

Any updates on the B1's that are suppose to be making the trek across the US? The reason ask is I caught several transmissions just now from what sounded like RAMBO (B1 call sign) talking about landing at Ft. Bragg/Pope. It's obvious it was a fighter or bomber due to the classic sound of wearing the oxygen mask.

SPUR 71 flight, a couple of KC-135s off MKE currently AR with an E4B MANDO 25. Wondering if the KC-135s will go back to MKE after the AR or if this is just a pit stop enroute to a staging point ?
Looks like MANDO 25 getting some work done at Warner Robins so maybe test flight for
their A/R system .. Doh see you got that..
Another C-17 off KCHS to Dyess it seems RCH 937 #07-7180.. Not likely B-1's to a Army base but we have no idea
when the B-1's are heading out. They usually like having their gear in place overseas before they depart and that
is just hapenning today for pickup anyway. Likely sometime this week.Would be nice if they stopped at Dover or McGuire
on first leg then hit the tankers up at Pease but not banking on that :)

I was thinking the same thing, we get a lot of random aircraft into Seymour Johnson and figured whatever I was hearing was enroute to them but they specifically stated they were unable to get Fayetteville to answer on UHF, they switched to VHF and said they would be arriving shortly so I have no clue what landed. Very rarely do I get hits on UHF for Bragg/Pope unless is the Command Post Channel.

1435- SAM 726 (C-37 # 18-1942 AE6961) off ADW heading west.

1455- Bully flt (3 X F-16s 121st FS DC ANG) off ADW (348.725) & on discrete (238.175). Bully 3 develops avionics issue, so they hold over Notttingham VOR right after departure to try and fix issue. Lead says to switch to Satcomm. Bully 1 working 121st SOF (139.45) advising of issue.
Issue not fixed to Bully 3 told to orbit in place to burn off fuel. At 1504 Bully 1 working Potomac (348.725) advising that Bully 3 will remain in holding over Nottingham until safe to land and Bully 1 & 2 will continue the planned flt route.
