Why would it come into Paso Robles Municipal?

Park remotely away from the public terminal.

With two attack choppers loitering up high.

It's been going on for a couple weeks now.

Those Big Wigs use the V-22 Osprey.

Those are in and out all the time.

Roberts has it's own 7K' runway.

Four of them headed in the general direction of Dagget, CA Marine Logistics Base.

Were they actually CH-53K King Stallions (ordered but inventoried) being tested?

Funny that four V-22's came into Roberts almost immediately after the heavies left.

Most likely preparing for something soon. My son's guard unit was called up and he left Friday. Only thing he could tell me is he had training for a few weeks and then on to Texas where they'll be given orders. Stay tuned.

Do you suppose they're raiding Army National Guard units for supplies headed to Ukraine? Figured they'd hit east coast units first. Maybe Nancy stirred something up we haven't heard about yet?
