Well, I am immensely weirded out.
So there I was, sitting in my home out in the country (which just happens to be right on a flight path for some of the folks moving out of Tinker AFB
in Oklahoma City,) letting my scanners run, as I normally do, when the radio I have set monitoring airspace frequencies catches on 121.8000 (Tinker
Though I didn't catch the initial transmission [from the pilot,] Tower did respond with this: "Affirmative, [static..]. Commence NIGHTSCAPE." Then,
I did a "whaa...?" when I heard this, only because of Robert Doherty's fictional "AREA 51" series, in which the "black" choppers are a part of
a project called "Nightscape" out and about around the base itself.
Coincidentally, perhaps ten minutes after picking up this transmission, two C-130s and four Chins flew by, along the flight pattern over my house.
Obviously, this opened a little door in my head that said "what the...?", but what about you all? Coincidence?
