Not on ADS-B Exchange, but definitely a serious WTF moment. Went by Blythe, CA today. There's a very small uncontrolled airport there. By small, I mean one WWII looking hangar, and a smaller building.

I usually barely glance over, because even the private aircraft there are never flying. Today, I glanced over, and there was a C-130J parked there, on internal power (red light on the tail lit up). What's odder is that it was painted Asian green.


Marines do a lot of training, including insertion and urban, in that area. It's close to MCAS Yuma. They coordinate with many municipalities for training work. There's also some coordination with various systems tested at YPG.

It was either RAF or RAAF. They were dropping small teams of six onto the airfield.

Interesting. RAF Falcons team trains at MFFS/YPG. Never seen them at Blythe, but might be related.

AN-22 went to Prestwick. Not sure where it's heading after that. Looks like Helsinki, then back to the UK area.

Schedule.

So the schedule for the AN-22 was wrong. It's on the way to Gander, then down to Cuba.

First time I have seen this on ADS-B, 92-9000 B742 VC-25A over Indiana. Apparently it's one of the presidential planes, heading West out of Washington

They pop up occasionally, usually on training flights.

Thanks Zaph, I'm guessing they wouldn't have the transponder on if the president was on board ?

Here is another new one for me, A U-2S flying over Scotland now general heading NW, 80-1081 alt 60K. First time I have spotted one over UK.
Heh, tracking it's flightpath backwards, it actually flew directly over my house. Could have done the decent thing and buzzed me for a photo shoot !

Probably heading back to Beale after a deployment. Another one would have gone the other way sometime in the last week or so.

a reply to: nelloh62

Once or twice they have, but SOP is not to.

There were 30 C-17s participating in Coyote Freedom a couple nights ago with the THUG callsign. They should be heading home.

Autocorrect. It may be easier to rename the base IMHO LOL

They did. Now it's Joint Base Hickam-Pearl Harbor. From what I've heard it's gone to hell too, since they handed it to the Navy. They even have a gated community for non-military people in some of the old base housing.
