CSC ran the "threats" around the range. ["Threats" are surface to air units that have been de-milled, i.e. they just have radar and cameras, but no missiles. Essentially a "virtual" enemy.] You can see CSC on the door of this truck if you zoom in.

Nothing particularly earth shattering here. Just a FYI for those that visit the range and perhaps see a different name on the trucks. Usually at the end of a nighttime Red Flag session, you will see the "threats" leaving the inner area of the range at the Cedar Gate on the ET Highway. Also from the "back gate" near Rachel.

BTW, if you haven't been tracking the NTTR weather, it has been hell on earth for a few weeks. Lots of water vapor in the air. The link below leads to a page where you can see the weather from Tikaboo Peak.

Weather has been worse then hell lately. I am still living 20 miles from the NTTR and it is currently 11:11pm and it is still 33% humidity outside according to my Walmart Weather Station!

At high altitude, like on TIkaboo, the RH is in the 50% plus range. The photo from the TIkaboo cam shows virga (watch your spelling on that one). Virga is rain that evaporates before it hits the ground.

I suspect Groom hasn't had much of a chance to do much testing in the last few weeks with the poor weather conditions.
