  • So, anything out of the ordinary going on in your area?

    I've been seeing Chinooks doing manovers in the KC Metro area, along with police on quad runners and armor vehicles. Not normal for KC.

    It may be nothing, but I live on a rural mountain top, not on any regular air travel path, but we've had some big low flying military aircraft starting to fly over in the middle of the night.

      Had some industrial-sized propane cylinders disappear from a local store earlier this week. State Police and DHS found them a couple towns over. Might have something to do with the Pave-Low my neighbor spotted flying nearby over the weekend.

        A freind works at a hospital and she says that morpine is running out and supliers are in short supply.

          Have seen an unusual number of military flyovers in our area this summer. Have been told they're A-10s. Might just be flights for PR (parades, etc.) but we're sure there are more this year than in the past. Can't think of anything else I've heard about in the Detroit metro area. Still prepping like crazy to the extent of my budget!

            Has online aeronautical charts. Very useful to check and see just how much air traffic is supposed to be flying over you. Towards the same end, having a good aircraft recognition guide such as those published by Janes is also handy.

            And I haven't even mentioned some of the things those pilots say over the radio...

                Last weekend a flight of Cobra helicopters flew over the house which in and of itself is not unusual as I am in the flight path into and out of Campbell Army airfield..... the regular army does not fly Cobra helicopters any longer ..... since the late 80's. I don't know what model they were other than they were single engine ..... the Marine Corps flys twin engine aircraft only..... these don't belong to our armed forces.

                  Cobras are still in use by other Federal Government agencies, and the aircraft would have ID'ed itself on the local approach/departure control frequency.

                    Not too much happens in our airspace because it is resticted. Too many Unmanned Aircraft flying around. We also have one of the Aerostats to monitor the border located here. We also have the Border Patrol aircraft stationed on our airfield. So, overall, it remains pretty quiet here.

                      [Cobras are still in use by other Federal Government agencies,]

                      One would have to wonder, which agency that might be. What agency do you suppose has need for attack aircraft? Which agency can afford to operate 6 AH-1s and what sort of op might require 6 attack aircraft?
                      I was mildly curious.

                      [and the aircraft would have ID'ed itself on the local approach/departure control frequency]

                      I don't monitor radio frequencies ..... the agencies would use coded identifiers which controllers may or may not have a clue as to their parent agency.

                        Coded identifiers remain coded until the first scanner hobbyist puts two and two together and posts it up on an Internet forum. Especially since most of those identifiers are really pretty obvious sounding. Never underestimate the power of hobbyist COMINT. A lot of interesting aircraft programs being flown out of a certain Nevada airfield were originally brought to light by a bunch of men in lawn chairs hanging out in the desert with a pair of binoculars and a police scanner.

                        Always monitor local radio traffic. Sometimes it's the best way to know what's going on out there.

                          Went to a local firing range this weekend. Noiticed a couple of vehicles coming in parking lot and slowly cruising thru, not stopping to get out and enjoy the facilities, like the rest of us. Not being paranoid but I started backing my truck in up against the wall at the range , believe I'll park a couple of blocks over when I visit the local gun shops and surplus stores.

                            Believe it or not, the forest service has a number of them, without the weapons systems, that are used for fire monitoring; State of Florida also has a handful for the same purpose. I believe they are all painted white & orange, like an Iraqi taxi. There are several for sale on the internet as well if you would like your own. A number of other countries also still use them.
                            US Army retired them in 99 from the ANG and the super cobra does have twin engines.
                            O.W., what you saw would make me pause as well. Thanks for the report.
