On my bucket list destination.
My question is... what's the Fouga Magister doing there? Really cool... but?! 1950s bird, which, to my knowledge, was never in US military inventory... so what gives
Is this just a private guy who slipped in with the military birds? It seems where they are that is just a MOA and not actually restricted.. assuming you stay low enough..
Also available in green -
Known as the Mach Loop but its clearly subsonic. It's in Wales.
Yeah I was wondering the same thing. I think Edwards uses civ test planes from the test pilot school at Mojave. He was cookin’ for a Fouga. It’s in the MOA on a low level but outside R area.
That AF King Air though. What were those guys thinking???
I always love how some airframes just have a unique sound. One you can tell what is flying by without even looking.
That N number is registered to SWIFT AIR INTERNATIONAL INC of of San Pedro
Seems like everyone including the Trashaulers were deeper in the Canyon than the newest airplane, the “vaunted” F-35.
it was a mooney, right?
Hey, it's new and expensive, they didn't want to risk getting a scratch in the paint. I bet they take up four parking spots on the ramp, too.
There are several magnificent still shots embedded in the video. Highly recommend taking a few minutes to watch this. Right up there with Lowflynjack quality, so that should tell you something.
Yep, this guy has some great shots from the area.
The catch is that it's inside a National Park and is subject to the 2000'AGL thing.
(and I had never heard of the Jedi Transition until today and had to Google the backstory and location. https://theaviationist.com/2017/11/...icas-plane-spotting-jewel-at-risk-of-overuse/ )
I didn't watch the video, did it sound like a 2 stroke leaf blower?
Ok, how do I get to do that? I know they allow low passes over space shuttle runway with permission, so....
Guys like Gauntlet Warbirds do contracting for the Edwards test folks and others, and routinely fly through that airspace.
Depending on where this actually took place and how much you want to sleuth the sectional it seems between 2K and 3K there is an unrestricted (however still MOA) that you can operate in
Granted.. even in the best case scenario that would be borderline legal anyway. Still, I did fantasize how sick the Cirrus would look going through that valley. Albeit, at 185 knots it will look far less impressive
