Post by DSTMULE »

Anybody out there a few weeks ago when that landed on the runway at OW's.....Amazing to watch :shock: ...used up less than a third of the runway stopping...even less taking off. I got some pics on a throwaway camera, i will see if i can get them on here later.

It wasn't "Fat Albert" (the Blue Angels transport plane) was it? I see it out there all the time but never landing.

Maybe picking up jumpers that landed earlier? The military do this all the time from the Holtville Airstrip that is just west of the dunes. Old military base that is no longer active, but still used.
