C-5 Galaxy! It is parked over at the shell, rumor has is that we may see a few more transports arriving today! Go get some pictures Bo!

Speaking about large aircraft, At my spotting spot at Pasco airport, about 100 feet from the threshold of runway 30, I stood and watched a C-17 do touch and goes with like 5 other people there. My spot is catching on.

Not to worry Bo, I'm sure this is just the tip of the ice-berg.

Anybody notice a lot of Government vehicles around Calgary? I've seen like 3 in one day.

Interestingly the Calgary Airport Authority doesn't know when the transports will show up until about 10 minutes prior to arrival. So basically it's all guess work. I'm writing my exams on tuesday and the following monday.
