On a spring skiing mission a few years ago we were standing on top of Rampart Ridge when an F-18 Growler buzzed up Gold Creek valley. I looked down on the pilot who give us a big thumbs up before banking a turn over Alta Pass and disappearing out towards the Lemahs. Thanks to this thread I know that's a specific Navy route now, VR-1335.
I've also been buzzed by a C-130 at Gold Creek Pond. That was pretty incredible considering I grew-up in a city whose small regional airport shared facilities with a C-130 Hercules group of the National Guard.
Still do not know where the 52s came from probably Fairchild which had a SAC wing my brother was stationed there and we saw the B-47s back in the day. The original 52s were something else though. I was in law school in Tacoma in 75 when they were evacuating Nam C5 or 147 every 15 min or so.
