    KBFI 8/3/11 - Most productive 15 minutes

    Hey everyone,

    I saw a DC-3 was coming into BFI, and being one of my favorite planes, decided to venture down to catch it (even though I really should have been packing). Turned out to be an amazing 15 minutes of spotting. In total: 1 x DC-3, 1 x F-18, 1 x A-6, 3 x USCG Helicopters, 1 x A-26, and 1 x T-34B.

    Here is the best of the batch:

    Really nice, Tad! Looks like you got there at just the right time. One note - that's an EA-6B, not an A-6 (they are all gone...)

    Thanks everyone.

    Sorry, guess I am not that familiar with the military stuff. Thanks for the correction.

    And from what it looked like Jeremy, they were doing passes over the Navy ships in Elliot Bay. Took off and all headed that way, never to return from what I know of.

    Hey Tad. As you know that I am a huge fan of Growler (EA-18G) so I was able to read the tail numbers on your photo. Is this 166940, right? Thanks!
