Luke is having a 15 plane fly over today at 3pm

Recommended Posts

I was in line at the Credit Union in Mesa and they flew over at 3:20. Was kinda cool.

I still hate people that don’t enjoy the sound of freedom!! Out where we are at we don’t hear it often. But when we do, it’s either practice, protection, or a take over. Luckily it’s all been practice!

You can go out By Luke and watch them at least 6 days a week and probably 7. I bet the only reason they don't flyover the City all the time is the Susans that complain about the Noise.  That would be cool. Kills Me the people that buy houses out by Luke ,then complain constantly  about the noise. Hasn't it been there since World War 2.  I went up and st by the 101 west of Cave Creek and got great Video!.............BOB

The Susan's gotta hate.  Would they still be put out if the jet noise overhead were from our foes? Would they care if they understood the capabilities of those F 35s? Probably no. But there were enough aircraft in that fly over to control the skies of America.

That KC 135 is out of downtown Phoenix and when I worked next to the Scottsdale Airport, I couldn't believe the number of military craft in and out.

I was fortunate as a kid, I grew up on military bases. Lived right down by the runway In misawa japan always road our biked there. then when Dad retired we lived extremely close to Mc cord AFB in Washington always was on the base there too as my neighbor was a c130 pilot and mission commander. then I moved here a few + miles from luke.

One of my customers from 20 years ago owned a building on the north side of the Yuma airport where they worked on Harriers, we'd go sit by the fence on lawn chairs and watch them lift off. cool as shoot. Chatted with some of the pilots through the fence a few times. cool stuff.

hopefully in the next few weeks were going to take a drive up to CA to see my daughter at camp pendalton , shes hoping to get me on base to see the hueys and Cobras she works on and f35's

I did two deployments to Misawa Japan flying Navy P3Cs, Misawa was hands down the best Air Base short of maybe a few in Western Europe.     ** FLY NAVY land AF  **

I was there in the late 60's when it was a Navy base Dad was incharge of all the fuel into that base. if I recall we spent 4-6 years on that base when they turned it over to the USAF. Lived at the gun club. shot wild dogs and crows off the end of the runway all the time.

If you didn't know thats the base that all the soviet migs that were defecting were escorting into. we were always on High alert. wasnt allowed out where ever we were at the time for hours and hours. No buddy has ever experienced a lock down like a military lock down on a base in a foreign place when serious shoot hitting the fan. and from a kids standpoint looking back that was pretty f'n cool.

Did you ever go to lake tawada about and 1-2 hours away? we hunted everywhere out there Dad  was one of the few legally able to own a center fire rifle(off base) and always got calls when a bear went rouge in one of the cities/towns nearby. I was born  and raised in Japan and left when I starter highschool.
