Ok, bigger mystery, why the hell did at least four Rhinos just land at Fort Worth-Alliance airport. We usually see a lot of military aircraft there,
but T-38s, T-1s and the occasional Viper out of the plant. I can count the number of F-18s I've seen there on one hand with most of the fingers left.
And the answer is.....cross country trip without tanker support. There are six departures, and one of the first group broke and headed back in.
They're E models, out of either VFA-122 or VFA-125 out of Lemoore.
