Are the F-15s and F-16s patrolling the skies again with the Code Orange Alert?

I was seeing the U shaped contrails over Detroit again today like I was shortly after 9-11. I didnt see the jets this time making them like I did then which were F-16s doing patrols, but I did see a couple of contrails appearing in the same locations that they did last time.

I didn't see this though on the last code orange on Sept 11- 2002

That's because there wasn't a code orange on Sept. 11.

George Dubya made this childish thing up after Sept. 11.

did you read my post closely?

Sept 11-2002 not 2001.

There was a code orange issued on the anniversary of Sept 11- 2001

We have been flying Op Noble Eagle missions nearly daily even at lower threat levels, since the Morning of Spet 11, nonstop.

So certain cities and areas will continue to get fighter, AWACS, and tanker coverage on occasion, though often specifics will not be broadcast.

We even had an E-3 crew diverted Op Noble last Saturday for about 6 hours, to help with shuttle debris cleanup, watching the a/c and airspace over east Texas. News archives in OKC can give you more info if interested.

What happens on RED ALERT? Shutdown government? No flights allowed period?

"Did you order the Code Red?!?!"

"I want the truth!"

"You can't handle the truth!"

Code Red actually gives the gov't the authority to "monitor, re-direct, and constrain transportation systems". This means THEY could actually cancel flights over certain areas or re-direct aircraft.

It also calls for assigning and pre-positioning Emergency Response personel.

and the biggie: code red does indeed mean closing public and governement facilities as needed.

Code Red is basically a full lock down. 9/11/01 would have been a Code Red.

Yeah I hope not to see a code red, but I fear if their is a war with Iraq we might see one.

The day the Columbia was destroyed on re-entry we were out flying near the KSC here in FL and were over top of 2 F-16's doing low passes and we were still about 30 miles from the Cape.

Yeah but that's different, they probably aren't doing patrols. You have Patrick Air Force Base nearby there and they are probably doing practices.

Well before 9-11, during the mid 90s I used to go to spring break in Panama City Beach Florida, and every day there would be pairs of F-15s flying by all the time from Tyndall AFB and we would see F-18s from Pensacola over 90 miles away.

Air Patrols are so silly. Its a waste of tax dollars. All we need are fighters on alert at a locarl airport that can "scramble" quickly to the desired area. Thos fighters ain't got afterburners for nothing!  Big thumbs up

Indeed, the F-15s that scrambled out of Otis AFB on Cape Cod were 'late' on Sept. 11 2001. So having them 'ready' on the ground isn't a guarantee of success.

My biggest fear? Sports arenas...Final Four, Stanley Cup, NBA, Daytona. Although you will have a decent military presence at Daytona...Thank God for that. Go Rusty! #2MGD
