I am aware of the occassional flyby of the Apache over Houston, they can can be spotted doing touch and go's at Ellington field. Its on the SE side
Driving back from Alexandria, LA today, I saw one on the I10 bridge east of town. The one thats under construction with a new one right next to it.
It was traveling E-NE and was N of my position on the bridge.
When I got home (probably 30-40 miles), I stepped out back for a smoke and guess what I see. Yep, Apache, north of me (would have to guess a mile or
less), flyin W-SW in a gentle left bank, around 250 ft.
Was that chin gun tracking me....!?....maybe just the wind(!?).
Anyone else see these birds of prey today? Their flight pattern seemed odd to me today. The airshow was in Oct, and none in town now that I know of. I
am used to seeing them every now and then, but was just odd that I see one east of town, and then one right near my house, just when I got home.
Using me for training purposes? IR track, cell track?
