LOTS of activity today on the Flight Apps. Down south, up north, and above "a Remote operating location".
Caught a plane on FR flying over R-4808, almost directly overhead the radar sites Gariac reported on by the back gate entrance to groom.
The flights callsign was "ID". I had to laugh.

Anyways, onto the subject:

The base get used a lot for spy missions so it wouldn't be a stretch to have something interesting flying out of it.

I've always thought Beale AFB always seems a little too quiet, especially with all the funding they get.
"Hey, don't mind us, were just a quaint little local Air force Base, located close enough to large cities and infrastructures for support, but far enough away to not be noticed when we put up a 7 day TFR...move along people, nothing to see here!"

I live just outside Beale and these NOTAMs are fairly common. I've always associated them with Global Hawk sorties. At least that's my assumption since nothing really exciting ever happens beyond the U-2s, T-38s and Global Hawks in the pattern. Nevertheless, I'll definitely keep my eyes open...

There's an interesting high security hangar/complex on the north side of Beale. It's in the old alert facility, outside the compass rose. Looks like there's a model of a Predator outside one of the buildings. I wonder what's in that hangar.

The static display looks like a small scale RQ-4 judging by the wingspan to length ratio. The hanger is too small to fit either an RQ-4 or a U-2 though (roof line measures aprox. 100ft max width). Looking at the two to three sat dishes (depending on who's sat images you look at) in the compound though, my guess would be a UAS of some kind is in there.

I don't use Google Earth as reference, because I hate looking like a fool.

Beale is a great place for "touch, fuel and go"

Barksdale and England are the same.

Had a SR sighting in Shreveport, Tuesday.

Totally civilian.

There's a TFR at least once a month there. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Once a month, for a year.

Ok.

Back in 2008 Beale was granted 3 TFRs a week for uav operations. The AOPA has been complaining for years because they'll post two or three a day sometimes.
