Anyone on Cobb 41 see it land? Headed to SAV later on in the day.

I didn't see it, but I did hear it ...

Quite a distinctively different sound than the usual C-130s, and C5's, and F-18s that fly around Marietta these days ...

There's the one all-white MD80 that pops in and out (I'm guessing that's some sort of military transport), and after Katrina DL flew some 757s w/evacuees in, but AF1 is a nice change ...

Oddly enough, in the future, it won't be anywhere near as distinctive a sound, as the C5M program ramps up; that program rengines the C5 w/CF6's ...

Don't forget the F-22's!

I thought they weren't supposed to make ANY sound.  Wink
