There is another plane coming into Creech. Usually when they have a flight ID that is not in the format of AAAxxx or AAAxxxx, which AAA is three
letters and xxx/x is three or four numbers, it is a military flight. I don't see anything useful when Googling HORNT73 other that the Wall Street
Journal article on the BARR program regarding blocked planes.
I suppose stepping back a bit here for those not familiar with internet aircraft tracking, the BARR program is a way to hide your aircraft or flight
ID from flightware or similar services. Ray LaHood (Department of Transportation) thought this was a steaming pile of bovine feces since the aircraft
were using federal resources, so he pulled the plug on the program. Well the politicians that were getting free rides on corporate jets didn't like
that reporters could track their movements (as in the meeting of the GOP elite with the Koch brothers), so they got a provision in a funding bill to
start the BARR program again.
There are two ways to block your flights. One is to file with the FAA. That is the document you can FOIA. The other way is to contact each tracking
company individually. If you do that, then the information is not subject to FOIA requests.
I presume HORNT73 blocking got lost in the paperwork. It is declared as a CV-22, which is consistent with Special Ops.
