WWW303 landed at the TTR in the very early AM. After the Beech Janet crash, these landings were deemed "at your own risk" when the TTR tower was not
manned. Since I can't hear the TTR tower, I don't know for a fact it wasn't manned.
This flight in question was directly from MCarran to the TTR. The only odd thing was the flight was a bit lower than usual for the TTR, but then again
it is very unusual for TTR flights to go over the range rather than around it. This flight was mostly at 20kft. If somebody camped at Mt. Diablo, they
would have been flown over by the jet. Typically the Janets approach from the north, i.e make a landing on 14.
You can see there are no recent departure from McCarran in the midnight hour, at least on flightaware's archive. Every once in a while a Beech Janet
makes an odd hour flight, but not a 737.
