This site is completely addictive: https://globe.adsbexchange.com/

Just watching this K35R "Stratotanker" refueling aircraft land at Andrews Joint Base by Washington.

Since POTUS will be on AF1 when everything goes down we should keep an eye on the skies for his departure as a signal of the start.

I wonder how many K35R refuelers are typically in the air at one time. Seems like quite a few over the CONUS:

POTUS faking where he will be? wasn't there a rumor about attempted attack on AF1?
June 10, 2018, Peugeot Sound, AF1 had a missile fired upon it. Evasive maneuvers were taken. And the missile fell harmlessly into the sea. Trump was on his way to meet with the Korean dictator.
Rumor missile was launched by a sub that had been mothballed years before.

Color corresponds to altitude. Shape and size are indicative of aircraft type. If you click on the aircraft it will tell you exactly what it is and show you the flight path. Use the filters on the right to see only certain aircraft. You can filter to only see military.

https://abc7.com/politics/today-vp-pence-visiting-naval-air-station-lemoore/9717020/

FRESNO, Calif. -- Vice President Mike Pence and his wife are set to visit the South Valley today.

The Vice President is expected to arrive at Naval Air Station Lemoore sometime around 2 pm.


He will speak with service members about the Trump administration's foreign policy achievements.

Second Lady Karen Pence will also speak this afternoon.

She's expected to address military families -- and will highlight employment solutions for spouses of deployed military members.


This will be the Vice President's second visit to the Valley in the last two years.

Both locations and visits are closed to the public.

Interesting flight path since the bearing is not Fresno, CA. I wonder if there is a planned stop along the way.

Massive transport Lockheed C5-M "Galaxy" left Ramstein (Germany) and heading east. Curious to see the destination on this one.

Ramstein (ETAR) is a major hub for Air Mobility Command (AMC) and US Forces in Europe. Anything going to/from the middle east will more than likely stop at ETAR for fuel.

I would assume that the Navy always has one of these in the air in the event of a surprise attack that disables ground control.

I've noticed multiple E6 aircraft aloft on weekends the past couple of weeks. As for AF2, it might be headed to Offutt AFB for refueling. Who knows.
Range isn't good enough to go from DC to California?

Looks like they may have been avoiding some weather. Track has turned back west:

C-32 official range is 5650 nautical or 6500 statute miles.

If they're stopping, it's for hookerz and blow or because someone forgot to gas up prior to taking off.

I served in the Army '72-'74. When I talk with vets who went in decades later they say "Yeah, those were not the best of years." so I assume that 'era' is discussed in the ranks...

Had it been 10 years later I might have become a 'lifer'. Reason I mention it is now that I'm much older and I read the knowledge base some of you guys have I wish I could have seen it through for more than 2 years. In looking at the technology developed since then I'm amazed at where I would have been - at the forefront of an electronic age of discovery.

Not trying to jack the thread... just some observations I've made....

Carry on....

Back again. Near Cheyenne. Must have been in an odd place for triangulation.

The site might not have any ADS-B receivers in that part of the country.

Woke up at 4:30 this morning and heard a distant propeller aircraft (sleep with the window open). Checked online and saw it was a C-130 from Fort Snelling (Minneapolis).

There have been steady streams of C17 and C130 aircraft into DC. Seen a bunch from Wyoming also.

A couple refuelers doing circles off the coast of Florida north of Maralago. Also an E6 command center heading down the other side of Florida.
