Some interesting aircraft to follow

Ever hear of Janet? :open_mouth:

Okay, Air Force…
But who/what are they?

Janet aircraft…

We’ve seen a number of Janet flights from Vegas to places that may not exist… flying as WWW + a flight number if I recall correctly, although I can’t think of any numbers at the moment.

Secret, unofficial flights run by EG&G (govt contractor) between McCarran and Area 51/Groom Lake Test facility.

In other words, it is the employee shuttle for the base that does not exist.

Tonopah Test Range airport is the one with all the WWW “Janet” 737 flights from Vegas.

That’s the “official” destination. I think the Janet flights get handed off to a military controller once they are out of civilian airspace, then their destination changes to whatever Area 51 nomenclature is used.

Hi “fan”. If you read through all the postings here under notable activity, you will find a number of threads with NASCAR as well as celebrities. Also, try googling for celebrity names and aircraft or tail numbers. But definitely try reading all these threads first. They’ll keep you quite busy. Welcome aboard! :smiley:

This large thread notes quite a few celebs aircraft.

These aircraft come up as turbo props and i thought that the “Janet” contractors flew Boeing 737-200’s? Maybe they changed aircraft/contractors. Nice find by the way.

The Janet flights are flown both by turboprops and the more well known white and red 732’s.

4 year old thread?

And your point is?

This DC-3 conversion is an interesting aircraft to follow and, guess what? This topic is “Some interesting aircraft to follow.”

Why start another topic when there’s one that already fits the category? I hate topic bloat.

There’s also a sticky at the top of this forum. :open_mouth:

I love stirring the pot. :laughing: :smiling_imp:

That was the topic I was actually looking for when I searched fora notable aircraft thread. Found this one first so I posted here.

and contributed to topic bloat. Take your medicine like a man, you F’ed Up homes.
