A MC-130 Dragon Spear from Cannon AFB has been "secretly" orbiting over Amarillo tonight.
I couldn't help but notice my apartment complex seemed to be in the center of his orbit - either that or I'm just paranoid.
He was running dark most of the time- but I could hear his engines and were monitoring his communications with Albuquerque Center.
Interesting enough while Ken and I were talking about the aircraft - on cell phones Ken threw in a few keywords " and said , "I wish Obama would bomb Allah at Admiral Ackbar's palace."- as a joke.
We were amazed to see the MC-130s orbit change to include Ken's place who is about seven miles away as the crow flies. I can't help but wonder what the monitoring suite on the aircraft can do.
I cobbled my digital Cannon to my Russian night vision scope and turned the tables on our high flying spy friend and captured a fairly decent snap of a military aircraft flying at night.
Say hello to the rest of the spokes back at Cannon for us!
