I was standing in my workplace today on 36th street right near the airport. The building is around 1,000,000 sq. ft. The entire building was shaking pretty good. The noice level in the building went from ear plugs needed in most areas to well above this level. I never did get a chance to step outside.

I haven't seen any fighter jets since last summer and the refueling tankers have pretty much stopped coming in or I've just been too busy to notice. It sure sounded like another world war was starting. I believe those maneuvers are practice and they actually cover each other while they are refueling on the ground.

They were out of Canada heading to a US base. The one pilot was fro G.R. so they refueled here and he got to visit with his parents for a bit. They were rattling our building too.

Think they could stick around until Friday and give me a lift out to British Columbia? I wouldn't even mind if we diverted to one of the 'Stans and dropped some bombs on heads.

They were in and out in about an hour. About an hour after the fly-bys we heard 2 more seperate take-offs. Nothing after that except the normal sound of liners taking off and landing.

They were on a secret mission to get the specs on the new "Sinister 1" design build.
