Wednesday November 17th was the date for this year’s MAFEX exercise.¬†Unfortunately¬†is was a night exercise. Not too good for regular cameras! So instead of driving Rachel for MAFEX, spent a few hours at Nellis watching the normal flight ops. It turned out to be a very active period. Here’s the first of a few posts from the day.

 

Enjoy !
