No. It's the 80s again. Iran has gotten away with just about everything they've tried for the last 20ish years. That leads to them thinking they can do whatever they want and get away with it. And we end up here again. With luck, we'll see another Praying Mantis, everyone will step back, and it's done with.

There's been a quiet civil war in Iran between the moderates and the IRGC for a number of years. Just about everything that's happened in the last 5-10 years has been the IRGC throwing its weight around.

The northeast around Maine and New York, and down the coast near Maryland and South Carolina. Aircraft heading out near Maine usually go over the UK, into Ramstein for fuel, then on.

Aircraft exiting near Maryland or south are going through either Lajes in the Azores, or Rota in Spain.


Thanks I will be watching

It'll be primarily C-17s, with a few C-5s, and now C-130s.

Keep an eye on the KC-10 extender 85-0030 over Turkey. He just flew a loop after flying in from the UK. Might be going to meet someone inbound to the theater.

He came out of the US earlier. He may be holding while they sort things out. This is blowing up fast. Iranian defenses apparently accidentally shot down a Ukraine 737 on takeoff.

I'd say...way busier than last night for sure! U2 appears to be heading out over the north Sea towards eastern Russia.

Any idea what BNDGE53 might be? Seen it about half an hour ago over Turkey but has gone now.

Could be a medevac flight to Germany.

That was my thinking, bandage53. Curious to see this heading out of the area when there were supposedly no casualties.

They still have injuries from previous incidents, and stupid accidents that need to go for more treatment than they can get in country.

Looks like a C-5 into Barksdale.

Rumor just broke that we will be seeing fighter drags in the coming days heading east.

Can you elaborate as I'm not familiar with the terminology?

They moved the 82nd Airborne and associated equipment on large aircraft like C-17s and C-5s. Now there's a rumor that fighter sized aircraft, such as F-16s will be going that way. They'll be moving with tankers refueling them in flight, so they call it a drag.
