Skies are VERY quiet this morning. Only one military transport in the air over the entire CONUS, and it is not coming from or going to D.C. I think all of the troops have arrived, and today I expect them to get a full briefing on their mission(s).

That C130J is heading out over the water... stops in Florida, or GITMO?

On the right select "MLAT" and click the "Filter" button beside it. This will show (most) military aircraft. Then you can click on aircraft and see their point of origin, call sign, type, etc. The colors correspond to altitude.

It is an amazingly powerful and quick online software.

I think that C130J is following a commercial path to Miami (Homestead Air Reserve Base).

No air traffic over GITMO.

Crap! No Linux version.
This is (one reason) I gave up on Linux. So much of the software I depend on is not compatible. The other reason is that inevitably some hardware driver is not available or doesn't work correctly. Otherwise, I like Mint.

What's this guy doing? Traffic? This is with the "MLAT" and "filter" clicked.

I have the same issue and have my machines set up for dual boot but can run linux at least 95% of the time. I pull the network cable before booting windows. Fortunately my windows-only apps don't need the network.

Thanks, I stand corrected!

Edit: It wasn't a slam dunk as the developer no longer offered the package for my flavor of Linux. I had to do a couple of dipsy doodles to figure out how to get it. It works great actually and is better than the native screenshot utility

Why is this plane here today? Not sure why the planes aren't showing up, only the flight paths.

Curious that it is not flying under the call sign AF1. This is required for any aircraft carrying the President of the United States.

Is there any possibility he is not on it? Maybe all of his family is on it and headed to Mar-a-Lago.

I didn't watch the taxi and take off. Did anyone see an opportunity for him to get off before take off?

Probably intentional. Very possible.

Curious the C-17 following the same track from behind.

Probably not. Too much media around. Saw DJT and FLOTUS board and the eventual take off.

Tanker is also still circling DC.

No idea.

No other military in the vicinity when it happened. Watched quite a while.

When I decided to grab the reg, it was gone.
