    They do not have to match your speed.

    They can weave. They can Hi/Lo Yoyo.

    Or, if you make them mad enough, they can just shoot you.

    I flew through it Saturday (my first) on a trip from VA to NH, and it really wasn’t a big deal. Filed a VFR flight plan (but never opened it), and was using flight following from my departure well outside the outer ring. The fact that I was flying through the TFR never came up with ATC, even though I deviated from planned altitude and course due to clouds. I did communicate my intent to make those changes and was given the usual “you’re VFR, altitude your discretion”.

    I did overhear one pilot that asked ATC about flying through on his way to his destination and was just told “don’t worry, we’ll keep you out of the inner ring”.

    The TFRs for the LA trip are by far, the most mind exploding set of overlapping TFRs I've seen in a while.

    Looks like the HUD from Top Gun, right before achieving radar lock.

    We are being intercepted, quick, evasive maneuvers, throttle back, carb heat on, full flaps, that will show them!

    Looks better to me than the Trump TFRs in bedminster. At least those are mostly overlapping. Trump would typically fly into KEWR or KMMU so the entire NYC bravo became a TFR for a bit and then would heli to the golf course with the TFR following him and enveloping some 25 of NJ's GA airports. My dad is based at KSMQ so I frequently heard about it. It was basically every other week or more during the summer so he basically never got to fly on the weekends in the summer.

    Correct local to UTC conversions have never been this important.

    So... You're saying we should grab a few flares from the AutoZone first?
