A military flight is being tracked!!!!!???


#1

I was lookin at the list of airborne aircraft and near the bottom it had an aircraft called a Boeing Ra’am, with the AC identifier being F15, flight # being VOODOO1. i looked it up online, and it seems that it IS an F-15. it is flying right now from Nellis AFB to McChord AFB. anyone have any idea why this very specifically military flight is being tracked on here?

here is the tracking page…

Ok- I’ve had my fun cutting a pasting from the previous thread- next time, I encourage you to read links given as answer as they often contain nuggets of great wisdom

like i said, “i still dont understand, after reading that…” hence I DID read it, and yet i still dont get it. They would want to track their own flights using a public flight tracking system? seems wierd to me

Mduells guess to track their test/ferry flights for free seems reasonable to me.
