We hadn’t seen plane nor chopper in almost a month. Heard something a couple weeks ago on the shortwave about a shitload of stuff going up from Canaveral, and some from Vandenberg, but that may just have been rumor.
This morning’s contrails had us cheering. Then there were a couple more, coming from the opposite direction. Ray, with his binoculars, said they all looked American. Then there were a whole bunch, all scrambled up together. Missile trails, too. One plane came down just west of town, an F-22, someone thought. What the hell do they think they’re fighting over now?
