Ellington Field: March 15, 2020
Whenever word gets out that an adversary / agggressor jet is on the ramp word spreads quickly to us spotters. This past weekend was no exception. It had been a while since we last saw one from this unit on the ramp so it was a joy to see one again. A sight we never get tired of. When the pilot departed he kept it low all the way down the runway before pulling up and making a left turn to the south-east.
