With a quick read I thought the caption at the bottom right read 'Nightcrappers' and thought 'that's a pretty awesome squadron name.'

It's funny, the Wife and I sit outside in the afternoon and I do see a lot jets fly over but I had no idea there were that many.  :o

I live about 4 miles from Luke AFB, where they do a bunch of F-35 training for the USAF and NATO allies. During the day, I can hear and see the F-35s take off and land constantly.

Interestingly on this tacking site, I can see them take off and land, sometimes circling around again, just practicing approaches. The transponder info doesn't give aircraft type for them just tagging them as military...I only know they are F-35s because I can see them.
