There are always interesting charters coming and going from McGuire AFB, adjacent to McGuire AFB is Fort Dix which is where almost all Reservists and National Guard Troops train prior to deployment overseas. I've seen WN charters atleast once a month, along with FL 737-700s, AA 757s, CO 777s and UAL 747-400s.

I thought this routing was unusual though.

Victorville California-Manhattan Kansas-McGuire AFB.

Couldn't this flight make it without a stop in Kansas, and why is it originating in Victorville?

VCV itself is a very interesting facility for military movements. Lots of activity of troops being brought in for desert warfare training nearby.

There have been a number of charters out of VCV this week. Infact NW operated VCV-SWF I believe today or yesterday.

That it is! When I was there last July,a C17 was doing touch-n-goes. Not something I see everyday. Last Dec,WN did a VCV-ROC-BWI charter.This was the first time WN has ever vistited the ROC.
