*If youíre missing an airplane specifically a couple of A30 Boeing 737 AEW&C, donít worry they are in Las Vegas. Either participating in the Red Flag Exercise (Feb. 25 to March 15) or they are in the casinos gambling (the crew not the plane).

The Boeing 737 AEW&C is a twin-engine airborne early warning and control aircraft. It is lighter than the 707-based Boeing E-3 Sentry, and mounts a fixed, electronically scanned, rather than a rotating, radar antenna. It was designed for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) under "Project Wedgetail".

Red Flag is an advanced aerial combat training exercise hosted at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. The Red Flag exercises, conducted by the 414th Combat Training Squadron of the 57th Wing, are very realistic aerial war games. The purpose is to train pilots from the U.S., NATO and other allied countries for real combat situations. This includes the use of "enemy" hardware and live ammunition for bombing exercises within the Nevada Test and Training Range. (From Wikipedia)

Hi Eleu

Thanks Eli. I can just make out the red kangaroo logo. The one at the back seems a little sharper, where the dof is better. Good upward pov and an excellent note, with adequate sharpness. The deep blue sky makes a superb backdrop. Tfs!
