    32 is in use right now and was used for the A-10s. That being said, I think 1/19 are open although not in use at the moment. I’d guess they’re still use 32 unless there’s a wind shift.

    I hadn't realized they finished construction on 1/19

    Actually, I am not sure if that they did finish work on 1/19. I heard the tower on my scanner this morning talking to a pilot and they said that they weren't sure when 1/19 would be open. They said it could be tomorrow or next week. But that it still wasn't open yet.

    Lots of great insightful info on here. Thanks to everyone for sharing. Two years ago, I recall that the Tbirds did do a site familiarization (either 4-ship or opposing solos, can’t remember which) before landing at MacArthur. They did it again with the others on practice morning. With the TFR having expired I’m not sure if they would do something similar on their approach today but we shall see.

    Yeah, about 3/4 of the way through the flight a second "Thunderbird 1" popped up on the Radar from Sioux Falls (not sure why), but that is the one to keep track of now.

    32 is still in use and BUSY. Missed the A-10's by 5 minutes bit I'll be here with my ladder waiting for the Growlers to arrive in the PERFECT light.

    My guess is the Skytypers, saw a formation of 3 fly over my place not too long ago.
