Plane Pr0n...

... with a local flavor:

Air Frame: A CV-22 Osprey with the 20th Special Operations Wing at Cannon AFB, N.M., descends on the cadet area at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., during the academy's Polaris Warrior training event, April 28, 2012. Polaris Warrior is designed to reinforce skills that cadets may need as airmen in the field. (Air Force photo by Raymond McCoy) (Click on image above to reach wallpaper version.)

From the Usual USAF Source.  I rarely see those Ospreys, either overhead or on the ramp when I go out to the base.  The C-130s are a different story, though... they always seem to be orbiting over P-Ville, especially at night.  "The sound of freedom!"


  1. They're flying every afternoon out of Kirtland. 2 birds at a time. I guess they were tired of sitting on the runway for the last year. I love watching any air traffic come out of the base since it's pretty infrequent.

    1. What? You mean the Raptors don't fly a lot?


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
