MAFEX was held at Nellis today which
involved nearly 15 C-17's and C-130's from about 12 different bases.
The C-17's came in about 5 groups of 3 with a callsign of THUG and the C-130's came in 2 flights, one flight of 10 Callsign DASH the second flight of 5 Callsign FELON.
I wasn't able to shoot the whole approach(which I did from my bathroom window) because my battery was about to die.
Since I missed this exercise I have to wait till May '09 to shoot the next one.
BTW, MAFEX stands for Mobility Air Forces Exercise.
