just took off from nellis air force base.
obviously we get quite a bit of air traffic through here, but tonight has been somewhat special.
I didnt realize the came out here, but as I said 2 B-2 bombers, 1 B-1 bomber and 1 laser plane all within the last hour just departed form Nellis. I
am assuming it is some sort of testing, but does anyone have any idea as to what drills they may be running?
The B-2s were fricken awesome...Just amazing to see.
I was at the park with my son when I looked up and saw (I am 95% sure) was the laser plane that has been featured in pop sci and discover channel.
Thought that was odd. Then the rest of the show took place.
There has also been a plethora of c-130s the last few days.
just to add.. I drive a lot for my work and one of the areas I go is at the very northern part of North Las vegas. A few days ago ( believe
tuesday)I was stopped at a stop light facing the mountains getting ready to turn left on the 215 (heading west) when all of a sudden 2 very very low
flying odd looking planes that blended very well into the mountains and quiet as a mouse flew directly in front of me maybe 3-400 feet off the ground.
(i could tell because they flew right along side the mountain). as soon as they got beyond the mountains they banked around them and flew out of
sight never climbing an inch. Now, i know nellis is right there. I live less than 5 miles away and at the time of this particular sighting I was
probably 10 miles away from nellis. These just stood out to me as odd because of how quiet and sneaky they seemed to be. And because they blended so
well, I could not make out a "regular" jet fighteror Air force style plain. anyway, just thought I would share, maybe they are related to what we
just witnessed a few minues ago.
my wife seems to think we havent had this many jets flying this late at night.
just noticed as well, they are all definitely heading in the same direction. A north west direction..
maybe someone could shed some light?
