Spotting at Dobbins Air Reserve Base (KMGE) (F22’s and C130’s)

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming to my new spotting topic! If you live in North Georgia I’m sure you knew about the C130 flyover this evening. I decided to go watch the take offs and landings but I got so much more! I was heading thinking I would only see the C130’s however the evening kicked off with two F22’s with full afterburners. These aircraft were about 50-75 feet above my head and pulled vertical directly above me. That moment was the best and craziest moment of my life. Then came the C130’s! Those flew around the route for 40 minutes and returned to do some cargo dropping practice! Tonight was great and sure did make up for some of the stuff I would be missing at Oshkosh. Thanks for stopping by and if you want to use my photos please contact me for permission first!

And I thought the F-22’s at Oshkosh we’re loud! 😂


Also, you got some great photos of the C-130’s, must’ve been doom to see them flying overhead like that, I’ve only ever seen them doing takeoffs and landings, and on static display.

That was exactly what I said. At Oshkosh I said I can’t imagine it getting louder than that but today my heart stopped. That was the craziest thing. There were quite a few people there at the time and the F22s knocked a pacifier out of a baby’s mouth from the force. I will never forget that moment
Edit The F22 not the pacifier 😂
