This is the chopper that came out when I was at Bald Mountain. Obviously a new one (no refueling boom).
I had put the camera in manual focus for some reason, and then when the chopper showed up out of nowhere, I didn't get any shots with a tail number.
Even my shot of the camo dudes in their new Raptor was screwed up.
Bald Mountain was THE place to get chopper action until the activity died off. I have some other Ghost Squadron images on the Bald Mountain page:
I was thinking about the two radomes on Bald Mountain. I assume the lower radome is designed to only see the area outside the base since it would be
blocked by the support structure for the upper radome. The top radome is probably the usual FAA radar. If so, then the lower radome could be for ELINT
off the range, though a really top notch installation would cover their bases and perform ELINT both on and off their property.
Since cell phones are not allowed on base, it would be entertaining to attach a phone to Medlin's cow and see if base operations goes out and tracks
