So I did get to spend some time at both Plant 42, Edwards, Mojave, and with Saturday being a return day and slow I headed over to Victorville to see
Just off of the I-5 and Hwy 138 junction I spotted this weird chopper:
It was clearly a movie prop but which one? I was thinking Escape From LA but its from the Arnold film 'The Sixth Day"
I parked on 20 Mule Team Road as the Boron Rest Stop was closed and was treated to a KC-46 and the F-35A AF-1 on final to Edwards AFB which had a bomb
load of either GBU-12's or 16's external mounted and on the left side. It may have been doing a tanking exercise with dissimilar bomb load and the
At BJ's Corner it was a bit slow but caught a USMC C-130J with what apeared to be the Harvest Hawk modification. Note the sensor ball on the inboard
left pod and the absence of the outboard left pod. He did about 10 touch and goes etc.
Also got a touch and go by a Raptor and its F-16 chase
Thanks to some timely Intel by Zaphod I was in position to catch SOFIA take off
Victorville was quiet but say a few things including and Omega Tanker etc
