Use this to know where to taxi, KEDW is even more complicated than KJFK.

Awesome!, women can contribute to the history of aviation. What an honor. Hope to participate in there!

Hmm… This could have been better if it were at the USAF place in the Denver region😕. Looks like I’ll fly a TravelSky flight in SoCal Advanced instead. Maybe a quick hop in a 737BBJ from KEDW-KNUC

Can you restrict commercial planes tomorrow in KNUC?

What are the other AF fighters besides the F22

Generally, F-14, F-16C and F/A-18

Yuhuuu… Are Low Passes allowed?

Hmmm…, considering the Test Pilot School is located at EDW, thought that’s where we would have the event.

Huh, didn’t know that was there. Thought that would be at the USAF Academy (KAFF)

I thought the F14 and F18 we’re both assigned to the Navy…and used on carriers

No, the Academy is the college.
