(MHV) Or (VCV)?

Sat Apr 23, 2005 2:51 am

hey desert rats,
im planning to go out to the desert in CA and am wondering which place is better to stop by at, George AFB which is now VCV, or Mojave (MHV)? i want one with some more traffic, ive been to VCV a couple years ago and it was dead and hard to find a good place to spot at, are there decent spotting places at MHV and any traffic goin on in there? thanks in advance

Why not just go for the graveyards?

if you go to either for "traffic" you are in for a big let down.

Neither has views of the actives unless you are airside.

Aitek, may I direct your attention to http://www.lostamerica.com/.

Troy Pavia is an amazing photographer, hopefully if the overcast clears up enough tonight with the full moon I'm gonna go down into the New Mexico desert to try some of his techniques.
