Why is it called Turbulent Tuesday?

Oh boy seeing the SOFIA is rare enough but this will make them populate 😂


I went on a flight with the SOFIA, just to see the telescope open and it was such a geeky moment, as the real SOFIA, just had an actual flight recently. Well on my flight, I even got escorted by Navy 11 from IFMES. it was really cool to see, and I will definitely be at this event today!

Comin’ for sure

Here are some screenshots:
