Probably out of China Lake, which is right over the mountains... Between China Lake and National Training Center at Irwin... there is lots of cool airpower viewing in that area.

My favorite 'flyby's' were the A10's that used to be at Rome NY and would prowl the hills of upstate, NY. Terrain there was an awful lot like the Fulda Gap West Germany, where everyone expected the balloon to go up at any moment.

Great video! Thanks for posting, Hermosa!

Cheers,

Heck yeah!
I grew up camping in the 'Dacks, and fondly recall the A10s on maneuvers up/around Speculator & Indian Lake.

Couple years back, we were fishing the MA-500K, trollin' a current edge in the deep of the Washington Canyon. Was up in the tower spottin' fish, and had a XXXL sized American Flag tied off the stbd. side tower post. Out of the literal blue, heard the unmistakable thunder of a fighter jet, and before I knew it, we had an F18 drop out of the sky and give us a look...followed shortly thereafter with a BADAZZ, close range flyby!
I'm convinced that fighter pilot saw Ol' Glory waving proud atop our sportfisherman, and obliged us with an incredible display of power! Got goosebumps just remembering that moment as I type...

Thanks for that vid!

Standard practice for bead setting in my AO...

Usually involves a Dominican truck driver who ends up with frizzled eyebrows & arm hair.
Nuthin' quite like the potpourri essence of starter fluid & burnt hair, serenaded by malas palabras and tank compressor noise... GOOD TIMES!
