Odd early morning flight to the TTR

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.

Since you couldn't hear the tower was manned or not i think given your answer we cannot comment about the tower being unmanned is a little mute?

If it was unmanned then the flight might appear strange given the time - but as we cannot verify that -its probably safe to assume it was manned and therefore nothing to see here?

I think you mean moot rather than mute, or I don't understand your comment. In any event, this is an odd time for a plane to arrive at the TTR.

It was also annoying that the stream from McCarran wasn't working.

That is a very strange time for a flight like that to take place out there. Was there any other activity that morning? Any stops at Groom?

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.
