I’ve been trying to dig on this airport HQZ Mesquite Metro Airport & military flights to/from JBA. Very strange this airport, relative to the DFW
area reminds me of the "Mena Arkansas Airport" in its obscurity.
There seems to be NO military or contractor facilities in close proximity.
Raytheon has a plant 10 miles away (with a closer airport in Rockwall TX). What’s odd is that this isn’t an isolated incident and nothing
remarkable about the airport. There’s a aerial photographer & a Civil Air Patrol office, furniture warehouse. HOWEVER, adjacent to the airport is a
large firearms facility – training, gun range, Custom Manufacturing shop!
Here’s a recap of recent MIL flights by call sign, serial & tail #. All go to/ from Joint Base Andrews (JBA) from this tiny airport location. Both
aircraft are Gulfstream V. Tail no. AE4A81 seems to be 99th AS (air support squadron?) if I'm reading correctly.
25May20 SAM769 – SAM784 (in/out) - 09-0410 AE010E not on MIL aircraft databases I can see
11Jun20 SAM817 – SAM818 (in/out) - 09-525 AE4A81
03Jul20 SAM975- 09-525 AE4A81
06Jul20 SAM976 (above)- 09-525 AE4A81
Obviously, the first flight looks suspicious or at least covert. Why isn't this plane registered?
My inner conspiracy theorist whispers this may have something to do with those 10,800 AR-15 full-auto conversion kits intercepted by CBP in
Any clues on this? Seeking guidance. Thanks!
