If Syria gets hit, watch CNN. The day of the strikes, the headlines will be about Syria. Faster than any other US news outlet however, they will pivot back to Trump, Stormy and Mueller.

If the TACAMOs are needed for real you may need a Nav and one of those on all of our aircraft!!

Only see one TACAMO over CONUS right now, inbound to STL at FL280.

An unusual number of Army 'Patton' VIP King Airs and Gulfstreams flying this afternoon. Are they inbound to DC to watch tonight's big game on TV in the Pentagon basement?

Six E-6B's up today and a couple of E-4B's as well:

The plane with the 'GOTOFMS' ID must have the old mode S/ADS-B setup. For years all of the E-6B's showed this ident when you passed them on the TCAS screen.
