Is that a MiG-15 or a 17? Looks like a 15, but I've never been great at identifying the two.

Spot on Zaph. It's a Mig-15 . Amazing aircraft, so small and extremely quiet. I would go as far to say graceful

That's one of those where the MiG-15 is easy to identify, but the MiG-17 has like three more rivets on the panel under the rear of the cockpit.

Those three put on a superb aerial display

The Mach loop is in North Wales. That's on my bucket list. To have a walk around the hills and then sit and watch the aircraft

It's hard to mistake a Vampire for anything. That was a pretty unique design.

It's cool as hell that you got to see them. I don't think there are many left flying.

Caught a C-130 variant doing touch and gos at Plant 42 today.

I think I saw Air Force One descending towards DC the other day. It was a clearly 4-engined aircraft over northern VA descending east towards DC at ~10,000 feet that didn't show up on any flight tracker, and it looked like it was too high to be making a Dulles approach (and those tend to fly north/south anyways).

I'm addition to the -130, which looks like it was Compass Call, just caught the Edwards NKC-135 at The Plant too.

Why am I filled with the sense that both of those old clunkers' mission profiles have been taken over by...

...something that might be related to plant 42...

There's been a lot of activity there today. In addition to those I saw at least two C-12s, one was doing touch and gos, and a T-38 do a flyby.

Compass Call was originally going as a no bid contract but they're being forced to bid it now.
