Wow!!! I have always been enfactuated with these war birds. We have the 138th Fighter Wing F-16 Falcons-here and when they do their rounds I drop everything to look upward....

We had Eagles at Hickam and every time they were in the pattern most of the people in the parking lots they'd go over stopped and looked up. What were fun were the T-33 trainers. They'd come screaming down at the ground when they were turning on to final.

Lord love a duck! That's a huge number of aircraft!

32 Raptors? They can't be all from Elmendorf, that would drain the northern defense down to near zilch....

They refueled 32 F-22s, meaning that F-22s came up for fuel 32 times, not that there were 32 F-22s there. They refueled a total of 165 aircraft by the end of the exercise, there weren't 165 aircraft involved in the exercise.

Phew, I'm glad I misunderstood that..LMAO. .


Still a massive showing to say the least. Is it this big every year or is this version on steroids?
