Today I posted another video from my last trip to the range. This time well-established point - Brainwash Butte and Cargo planes flying around.

This is the first time ever I saw C-17 ops at TTR. There were three cargo planes but it seems only one flew on that day during my hours at Brainwash.

If I understand correctly radio chatter, it seems that one departed from TTR and flew to Dreamland - but the question remains, was it just flying into "The Box" or actually landed at Groom?

(It's nice that Groom Lake still has 'callsign' Dreamland. I must say on my previous trips I never heard that particular word over the radio!)

Looks like the same C-17 came back later and landed at TTR, a cargo/delivery mission between our two Western bases? That's the question we won't have an answer to, probably but it would be fine to speculate and discuss.

Here is the link to the video: https://youtu.be/nU8zBbj3_TE?si=wFWDc8S8dRp__759
