    Unusual WPAFB activity. Is something brewing?

    I live in Dayton and was jarred awake by a ton of activity from Wright Patt. Woke up and heard atleast 4 E-4B's (Airborne Command Post?) and 6 fighter jets take off at 5:20am est. Who knows how many took off before I actually woke up. Absolutely unusual amount of activity for this early!

    Any ideas?
    Possibly gearing up for what's happening in Syria at the moment?

    Attack on Jack Frost and his oppression palace?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I heard it too and thought WTH is going on at WPAFB? I was already awake and thinking about getting in the shower and the loud noises of all the planes began. And having lived fairly close to the base for the last 13 years they are always respectful of their neighbors in this regard. So I had the same thoughts as you... something must be happening or amiss.

    POTUS is in Israel -- they've probably got the military on high-alert right now just in case something screwy happens.

    Combine that with the cyber-attack that North Korea just launched, and I think everyone's a little jittery.

    I used to work with a guy that grew up around Wright Patt. he said he always knew when something was brewing b/c he'd start to notice a bunch of trucks making their way over to the underground caves around the base.

    Well, if something does happen, we heard it on RZ first!

    The aliens are prepping a rescue mission to free their captured brethren from Hangar 13.

    Used to work over in Area B (AMRL, bdlg 442 I think it was) back when WPAFB was a SAC base... from my office window I could watch B-52's do touch-and-goes. Pretty cool.

    Pay attention to the open sky
