frito bandito said...

my money says the B-52 is returning to its base at Barksdale airforce base in Northwest Louisiana.

OK..OK...its actually Field Lab One flying me off to a meeting with Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama. There were some problems in the world that we were trying to sort out. I think we need to meet again soon....

Debbie said...

Wasn't that Air Force One taking off after taking President Bush home? It was kind of a guess, but I thought that Air Force One could be seen in Terlinqua that day.

Yep... B-52 and the B-1s fly around here to. A B-1 flew over about midnight the other night (Low altitude) and almost bounced me out of bed.

chempilot said...

definitely a B-52. i've been buzzed by b-1's out there before. looking at my flight chart for that area there are a a lot of military training routes....
