    Does the military spoof ADS-B info?

    If I recall correctly - one time flying across Western Kansas ADSB painted a target directly in front of me, same altitude, same heading and airspeed - sudden and surprising. Turns out that it was my own airplane that was being displayed and shortly disappeared. Signal was sent from the ground...

    Has anyone seen my rabbit?

    Probably not what you think it is, grouse tracks and then taking flight. Not enough disruption in the snow for a bird of prey strike. Cool pic though!
