Yep...they're getting our support out there too. I wish I was going...but alas, my squadron wasn't tasked.

I have some airline layovers in LAS next week. I'm hoping to do some photography off the end of the runway. The media tour on the 13th filled up early in July.

I have seen reroutes as far as 200 miles away from LAS or BLD. One flight RNO-PHX was rerouted clear out over GMN.

Seems the restricted areas might be a little more restricted than usual.

Perhaps a little off topic. But that's a great web site for airplane photos.

So fuel plan accordingly!

Okay, maybe it was Gorman VOR at the top of the Grapevine.
