I couldn't see the teams, but the 4 KC-10 tankers that are supporting them are visible on ADS-B. I was really hoping they would come down for a pass as well. A 4-ship KC-10 flyby would have been a sight to see. That being said, the two teams together was pretty cool. https://live.staticflickr.com/6...Jump to post
Probably not on FR24 but try ADSBexchange they track a lot of military as well as civlian.

What does that mean?
The NY state government has created an unsafe sanctuary state and the US government is retaliating and protecting its borders by banning New Yorkers from Global Entry
Nationals are in the World Series, my guess would be a fly-over for that game, not following the World Series, but if they were playing in DC then it would be for that.Jump to post
The infantry/carolina blue does need to go. The military doesn't hold on to uniforms for 50 plus years out of tradition; they are usually changed every 5 or so years. There's no reason to keep this 60's paint scheme for a presidential plane/status symbol for VIP travelers. The US Navy has used the ...Jump to post
Almost every day in the US a cockpit window cracks on a commercial aircraft. I see them regularly. It makes for great, sensational journalism on a slow news day but is not too far out of the ordinary. I seriously doubt that this happens on a regular basis... It happens pretty regularly, averages ou...Jump to post

Well we have a clear indication that the KC-46 does not have a higher scrape rate than existing USAF tankers. As part of closing out the issue though Boeing is still looking to improve the RVS system and confirmed that Boeing is paying the costs of these changes. Remember that list of KC-46 problem...Jump to post

ATC addressed taxiway D (Delta) at KATL as “Taxiway Dixie” for decades. This was to avoid confusion with the many Delta Airlines call signs on the radio. Now Delta Airlines is history Dixie might be too. Not sure. It is actually charted as Dixie on the airport diagrams, and yes this is to avoid con...Jump to post

I foresee a fierce competition between Pilatus and Embraer, despite a superior reach at 783 nmi in favor of the Phenom 300. The Phenom 300, in service since 2010, is the best-selling and award-winning aircraft in its class in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, with more than 400 units produced and delivere...Jump to post

I've driven from northern NH to PHL. I figured the 1+30 drive to the airport to arrive 2 hours early, the 1 hour flight, 20-30 minutes to collect bags, another 20-30 minutes to rent a car, then 30 to drive to the hotel was near enough to the 6+30 drive to make it even, plus it only cost tolls and ga...Jump to post
The thing about EAS in the Northeast and as well as some other areas, is that yes in good weather they are 1 to 3 hours from a decent sized airport. However, while the decent sized airport is having nice weather and things are operating on time, where the passengers live, or the terrain in between m...Jump to post

Very US view of the world Aeroflot operated "thousands" of AN-2's, so are likely to have had a single fleet well excess of 500 at sometime between the 1950's - 1980's.

This really depends, if it means reviving Shuster's plan unaltered, then there may be life in it as it addressed a lot of the sticking points such as user fees, controller retirements, etc. If it ends up being a different bill, that attacks these issues and makes ATC a solely for-profit enterprise, ...Jump to post
