Air Force YAL-1A (747-4G4F Laser) Sighting

Thu Sep 19, 2002 4:48 am

While driving on interstate 55 southwest to STL this past saturday I spotted the air force's newest weapon (747 converted into a laser) coming in for an approach to Edward's Air Force base in Illinois. It was too high to get complete verification but I am 95% certain considering its unique nose. Can anyone else confirm?

Edwards in Illinois, I'm offically confused. You mean maybe, Scott AFB?
