Another quality shot worth WAY more than 5 stars! These handle some pretty classified missions regarding submarine coms/monitoring. TACAMO, I believe it's called. Thank You, Gary!

TY, C.W. E-6 visits here are not weekly events, but we see them often enough. I've captured five different ones and a couple of those more than once, but I'm always very excited when I'm notified one is coming. I've loved 707s, DC-8s, 727s, etc., since the first ones I photographed at KBUF, KJFK, and KBOS in the 60s, so whenever one of these turns up, I'm right there to click it. (Grin)

Very welcome, Gary! Never get anything that interesting over my way!

That's a nice shot, Gary! You do get some interesting birds passing through there!

Spy Bird - love them all, wish I knew what they are for and who designs them and their missions! 5 " I Spies" G-man!
