    Unusual markings on that Prowler. I wonder who owns that. I am pretty sure they have all been retired.

    Cool shot Neil!

    I've actually seen a shot of that one before, cant recall if it was with an F-18 or a warbird.

    Its a tourist destination even for aircraft they all like to do a lap or 10 .The 130's are based at Niagara Falls Air Reseve base so about 10 miles away so I usually ignore them unless they are foreign

    It's by chance that I found this thread. I live 10 miles south of Austin, TX and a few minutes ago I heard a piston twin that had some power. I spotted a twin at about 2000-3000 ft and two miles away. Then it looked like two airplanes in a tight formation then I saw it, the horizontal stab connecting the booms! I could not believe it, It's a P-38 !!! I have never seen one before and I love that plane. I just came in to check flightaware but it showed nothing (must be VFR) so I was looking through the forum and found this thread. Sorry no picture.

    I thought about it again today and could not help but smile. The only other plane it could have been was a Cessna sky master, but it was not, I wish it would have flown closer.

    Her in Sydney, the only aircraft you can spot are big birds from the airport.

    The only others are helicopters, and when you see one of them it means someone is in strife as they are rescue helicopters.
