Large movement of C-17s into March ARB (RIV) today (12/04/21)

Sun Dec 05, 2021 3:58 am

This afternoon on ADSBexchange I saw seven C-17s land at RIV within ~20minutes, all following each other on the same flight path from Nevada and all using the identifier THUG (THUG 41, THUG 42, etc.) I don't think I've ever seen of this many military transports visiting March at the same time like this before - does anyone know what the occasion was?
