Based on the pictures, that sure looks like a B52, not a cargo plane. C141 had a different tail configuration...

Couldn't really tell from the lousy picture what the smaller plane was. May have been an F16. Maybe not though...

Hey...according to my buddy that works at the Disney lot in Hollywood;

Air Force Week has hit Los Angeles. As part of a week-long schedule of events, the U.S. Air Force will be in our airspace and ear-space this Friday, November 14th.

Starting at about 11:15 a.m. there will be flyovers by two F-16 fighters, a B-1 bomber, an old B-52 Stratofortress, a C-17 transport and a vintage U-2 spy plane. The fifteen minute air show will start over Silverlake and proceed west to a ceremony at Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave.

Even if it was an unscheduled operation, why would people call the police because military jets are flying by? What would the police do?

Los Angeles Air Force Base is a couple of miles from LAX and it doesn't have any runways. It's the only Air Force Base without aircraft.

There are a lof of Air Force aircraft at Long Beach Airport this weekend for the USAF celebration. That or Los Alamitos is more likely where they came from.

I believe there were some aircraft that made the flight from March ARB in Riverside.

Thought it was funny the reporter said the aircraft came out of LA AFB when there are no runways there. Don't reports do any research anymore?

I assume residents called because they wanted to know if we were under attack. Should they take cover, evacuate, or ignore the aircraft?
You really can't expect the typical layperson to be able to identify whether a military aircraft is friendly or hostile. It's not like we see B52s or U2s flying overhead every day.
I'd still like to see an F22 up close, though.

The flyby was part of the LA Air Force Week kick off, it DID consist of an F-22, a B-1, 2 F-16s, a C-17, a U-2, and yes...a B-52 (it was from my squadron at Minot AFB in North Dakota). :)

There's typically a similar fly-over for the Rose Parade every year. I've taken pictures of the F22s, B1s and B2s. Don't remember if I've ever seen a C17 flyover at the house. They normally fly right over my home in Monrovia.

I am very, very familiar with the C17. I built them from 1989 until 2006...

The restricted plane, Stealth B2, used in spying combat, flew over Pasadena, for the third time, at 2:18 pm.

Ha, funny line! Hey, did they ever find Moe? Talk about a story that was hot and heavy for a bit, then faded away.
