I also spotted two members of the GAF VA group doing some missions on their C-17’s in the SoCal area. Shout out to them.

I actually don’t know, it happens when you use the IF screenshot button on the replay. Is on all pictures, but can only be seeing on some.

I don’t know if this can be related but it is right in the area where we see ATC openings and closes when playing as ATC 🤔

Yeah, that’s true. Probably a bug because I never saw that when I took screenshots in replays

Tricky thing is that it’s not always showing as @Jay757 said but I didn’t found why or why not 😢

I thought it did, my apologies. At least in all my screenshots it shows. idk. If you use your device screenshot the quality might not be as high… if you use IF screenshot you might get that square. Its a win/lose situation, lol.
