You see those pop up and fly around the area every so often.

Must be quite a whale to get flown in. I guess the 10 minutes I spend at the nickel slots doesn't rate

About 10 days ago someone posted that they caught the E-4B that has been in PDM on the ramp waiting for paint. It might have been an FCF.

Yeah, Functional Check Flight. They do everything from shut the engines down and restart them in flight, to running all the commo gear.

Anywhere from 3 days to a week, depending on demands on the paint shop. They probably painted it first, because having it painted would help to highlight any leaks during the FCF.

An OC-135 Open Skies aircraft is up somewhere in the Western US (Cn't seem to pin it down) and a Qatar 747-8 BBJ is cruising over OK, and looks headed to Arizona or New Mexico or some point close

Finally the OC-135 is up over Colorado

I wondered who that one went to. My money was on Kuwait, not Qatar.
