Day 3: Spotting @ Rainbow Canyon

After a somewhat disappointing Monday we hoped for some more movements on Tuesday.

We saw 4 passes and almost no flying activity high in the sky, so it was a very boring day.
We saw the “Blackbirds” again, which make place for a very nice pass from Thunderbird 7
Further we saw a United States Air Force T-38C 65-10437 ED from Edwards Air Force Base, United States Navy F/A-18D 164254 XE-444 and an unknown F-18.

Then it was time to go to Las Vegas and Nellis AFB to see Red Flag 17-1 in action.

Happy “Thunderbirds are go” watching 😉
