    Increase in military flights

    Heck with the drones. For the last 3 nights, 10:00 pm there have been multiple flights of fighters. 2x4 F-16s. Flying SSE. Canada's in that direction. Are we invading Canada?

    Hmm. The Osprey flights have resumed here as well. Was quiet for about 2 weeks.
    I figured out they *MAY* be coming from Shaw AFB and I'm pretty sure they are going to Wilmington, NC.

    If thats the case that would be over kill MadKaw... Even by Air Force Standards!

    Besides why would we want to invade Canada other than the fact that they actually drill or mine for their oil and the government doesn't try and stop them, their dollar looks better at least more stable and mostly on par with ours, they have more economic freedoms... In other words they are nothing like the socialist americans! Maybe we are mad that they remind us of how we used to be in someways.

    We have F-15 flights in the air in this area everyday, but then the 120th Fighter Wing is based in Great Falls and Border Patrol Black Hawks and AF Hueys from Malmstrom AFB. Nothing new.

    This is the time that many units choose to hold exercises. Expect more of this as more and more units return from the Sand-Box. At least until Congress declares a "Peace Dividend", and siphons that money from Defense to Pork Barrel.
