Flew in a C141 Starlifter as an E2 in the US Navy from Travis AFB, CA to Clark AFB, Philippines. The Boeing C17 is a fine procurement and replacement for the aging C141 fleet. Aim High USAF.
1 Mar 2022 20:03 PST SoCal… I’ve been watching Flightradar24 everyday throughout the day and evening into the early morning hours for several days.
There’s has been ALOT more activity off the coast of California as far south as Ensenada, Mexico to San Francisco. As a San Diego Native, I am NOT surprised. The USS Abraham Lincoln is south off the coast in military maneuvers.
There were several touch and go’s this afternoon by Grumman C-2A Greyhounds and other aircraft. There were also several C-130s and a couple of USAF C-17s off the coast. They were in and out of North Island NAS as well as MCAS Miramar.Showing power and practice, practice, practice!Thanks for reporting!!! BTW, do you know where abouts the USS Truman is? Is she in the Med or North Sea?
01 Mar 2022 So this is one of the C-17s at North Island NAS (Halsey Field) today. I can see downtown in the background!!!! All warm and fuzzy! I counted three C-17s off the coast and around the SoCal area.
