They can carry a lot of stuff.  Had something like that over our house a couple times at about 2:30 AM in the last week.  Pretty much impossible to get back to sleep at my age.  I'm glad they're in the air

It’s a challenge for me to grasp that big rascal is the worlds fastest military helicopter.

T55-L-7C engines rated at 2,850 hp and twin rotors. :o

No wonder it can do 200 MPH!

I can’t remember if I mentioned this, but I saw a goose fight that ended with one of the geese choking the other one out from behind while pressing the loosing goose’s head in the water. Dead goose.

CH-47's and Blackhawk's fly over our house 1-2x per week. We are on a flight path for training runs Im guessing. When we are at the lake they will fly below the tree line right above the water. Badass!

There's a major army airfield not too far West of you, right?

Nothing like seeing a pair of A10's coming in for a landing 20' over your single story office building.

I could count the freakin rivets.

They were practicing touch and gos.

After about 3 runs I had to go inside and actually get some work done.

That's super cool. I've seen A10's buzz at the tree line along the water at the Lake of the Ozarks a few times. But nothing like what you witnessed. 

 

I also see KC 1-35 tankers bank over our home often. They are based out of Forbes Field about 30 miles from us. Two other things I saw was AirForce 1 (technically not AF1 when the President isn't on board) bank over in the same flight pattern as the KC 1-35's. I heard the pilots will train touch and go's at various airfields around the country. And the coolest thing was a single B2 fly over my house. I was really lucky. I didnt hear it coming obviously but I saw a shadow zip by followed by a low rumble so I was able to catch a good 10 seconds of it before it was gone. They are based in Whiteman about a 2ish hr drive from here.

I've got the 122nd "Blacksnakes" about three miles from here and they fly the A-10. I love to see them heading in for the approach. They'll  make runs at each other, yanking and banking around, It's cool.
 


We had what looked like an E6 Mercury doing touch and goes on Thursday.

Between the Navy/Marines, the CAANG, and the local airport I’ve pretty much seen everything.... Only thing I don’t like are the damn F-18’s practicing either touch and go’s or training on the tail hook at NBVC after 10pm :stabby:
