[quote]I’m in Lakewood[/quote] Then you get a flyby almost every day the wind is blowing from the south. I used to live in Cypress Bend off of Benton Road and our house was just inside the final approach fix of the ILS approach to runway 15. Back in my active flying days, I would use our target...

[quote]Interesting. They have F-15’s from Belle Chase on their website’s schedule. No mention of the BUFF though. Maybe different flight of Eagles for that[/quote] All, I can tell you is what I know from the AFGSC side (bombers). We were asked to approve of the dissimilar formation of 1x B-52H a...

[quote]Can I get an approval for a flyby over my patio?[/quote] Takes General Officer approval for that kind of thing, and that ain't me. :lol: If you live close enough to the traffic pattern, I could probably convince one of my buddies to just "be a little off" as they fly around the traffic...

[quote]They’ll be headed to Hammond for a fly by afterward as well I assume?[/quote] If they do, they didn't pass that through HQ for approval...so I hope they don't. I also never saw any requests in the system for anyone to do either static displays (i.e. parked on the ground there) or flybys. ...

[quote]By 2050 they'll be almost 100 years old?[/quote] Every aircraft we have today (all H models, 76 total) rolled off the assembly line in either 1961 or 62. First flight of the YB-52 took place in 1952. [quote]in the 70's. Might have been a family day or something, was just a kid but I do...

[quote]Higgysmalls[/quote] I don't need to go to an airshow to see a plane, but yes I do get excited about them. Especially when I've had the opportunity to fly those amazing warbeasts and give some Taliban, Al Qaeda, and ISIS bastards a chance to find out if the 72 virgin thing is true or not....

[quote]he played so much better at RG last year and Chasen Hines just doesn’t impress me out there. Now if we could just find a center that doesn’t get blown off the ball every snap…… [/quote] Didn't Hines get some time at Center in the 2018 season? If so, and IF Hill continues to look good at ...
