Was that aimed at me or Zaph as in the header as it was me asking the question? I should have mentioned the C133 Cargomaster as well,I also just missed seeing them flying as the C141 Starlifters had just come into service when I started visiting military airfields.They've got one at Travis AFB which is properly restored,so looking forward to seeing that up close and personal.
The other stuff is either too far away or the wrong dates,I'm only in California mid June to early July and back in England after that.

You'll see a lot flying around Edwards. One of the days we were there there was a B-52, C-17, and F-35 at the same time. They do touch and go practice, and some of the F-35s do envelope expansion in the area. You'll see contrails doing some wild things.
There's no public access to the storage area, but you can drive to a few areas where you can get a good look out there. And you can sit right beside the Orbital L1011.
