We had "front row seats" for captures of this surprise arrival. We were sort of hoping it would be leaving before we did because then it would have taxied past on Alpha (there on our right) but it turned out to be a RON visit.

Gary... another exemplary photo capture!!! The Boeing USAF AWACS a/c were not an uncommon sighting in the skies above OKC... :-)

I just happened to be lookin' back in my folder for a pic I had posted and I discovered all these comments that I'd never seen. I always try to acknowledge Comments by viewers but I completely missed these. Ouch! My sincere apologies to each of you.
David >>> I'll make the correction pronto. (Better late than never .... lol) And I thank you for passing on the correct info. (Wave)
