Good morning Flight Friends! Brought some pumpkin spice creamer for the coffee and Strawberry Fresca strudels from Safeway. Has anyone had these? They are SO GOOD!!


jmstgirl

Good morning ☀️ that is the creamer I used this morning 🤗. [new day!](https://www.reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q4kgmj/sky_patrol_october_9th_2021/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) ETA: link is above.


BeeBeeBuckley

Trix, we move to a new thread, use the transition link below. And bring all the goodies! ✈️


lil_peanutt

Roger that, over!


LearnedFromNancyDrew

Frosty’s Mom checking in from the beach. Survey boat making loops from about a 1/2 out to almost where the waves are breaking. Would post a photo but you wouldn’t be able to see the loops and I don’t know how yet! Oh and I am in FL right now!

Thanks! I was looking all over for one.

Sky Snax signing in with (hopefully) new flair! Good morning!


Crawford0927

Morning! Newbie here with a question. I've noticed on flightradar24 some planes are blue and some are yellow....what the heck do the colors mean? Hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday morning because you deserve it!


murmalerm

I admit it. I have no idea how to make Cöunt Chöcula, my flair.


figleavesandwine

Are you on mobile or desktop? If you’re on mobile, I can help!


murmalerm

Mobile


figleavesandwine

OK, so if you go to the main page of Flight Friends, in the upper right hand corner, there’s three dots. Click on those, and then Edit Flair. If you click on the flair color you want, there’s another option in the upper right again that says Edit, put in your name, save it, tap that flair, and hit save!


murmalerm

Thank you. All I saw was the color and didn’t bother. Thank you, again.


ShiraHime

If any one is bored My son will be flying out of lzu (Lawrenceville ga) N53507 Probably around 9am They will be practicing stalls and emergency procedures so it might be fun to watch


I_am_Nobody_Special

Two words: Raisin Bran Got lost on my way to the new office, sorry about that.


fimpster

Hi Raisin Bran, I'm new here, but I keep looking in.


Literally-a-kiwi

Goodnight my friends have an amazing day and know that you are loved unconditionally 💞


jmstgirl

Sleep well Special K. Glad to see you again. 🥝💕


porcelaincatstatue

PH733, what is it? It looks so weird


jmstgirl

Interesting 🧐

Literally-a-kiwi

Theres nothing to know except that we love having you. Also you bring pizza and pasta to the break room so we could never let you go 😍


amymonae

Bongiorno & hello neighbour! :D Happy to see you here! 💛


eatmyasserole

Ciabatta!


amymonae

I’m currently looking at Italian helis, because I’m waiting for my coffee to be ready so I can re-route my radar back to Florida 😄 found these gems https://imgur.com/a/Qo2u4G4/ ☕️🚁🚁


BigAir1993

Nice tight lööps! N28LB from Long Beach https://fr24.com/N28LB/29709bfe


Literally-a-kiwi

Ooooh those tight ones🤤


TLOU2bigsad

Ooh that’s some beautiful symmetry


Fun_Strawberry_3344

FLIGHT CREW!! ❤


amymonae

welcome back Strawberry! 🍓🥳


Literally-a-kiwi

HEY FRIEND 💞


Literally-a-kiwi

I'm destined to be white call sign I guess 😅 something stops it from saving


xenowife

Don’t feel bad, it took me forever and some guidance to get mine to work. It didn’t help that my phone wasn’t letting me scroll down to find the options without trying to open my cell settings or flashlight.


Literally-a-kiwi

I'm one of those peoples that's kinda smart and kinda stupid simultaneously. It's a rare phenomenon but it exists...


xenowife

I have a computer-related degree and I still got stuck...


Literally-a-kiwi

Yeah but you're special. To me at least 😏


xenowife

Aw. That actually made me smile.


Literally-a-kiwi

Yeah flight friend besties... Kinda weird and awks but I just roll with it


xenowife

I dig it :)


BigAir1993

Yay!!! So glad to see your call sign Special K and little kiwi 😍 I dozed off at my desk and was catching up. I had the same issue earlier and I have no idea how I finally got it to finally save for me.


Literally-a-kiwi

Thanks my corn bread friend 🤗 Yeah it was so weird it would stay for a little then leave me 🥺


cheska47

Mine did that too for the first couple of hours. I almost gave up but then ::SONIC BOOM:: 💥 it worked!!


TLOU2bigsad

What do you want your flair to say


UpOxygen

Mine doesn't look to be working either. Would you be so kind as to change mine as well? It works for a little bit then disappears.


TLOU2bigsad

Welcome to flairs r us. What would you like it to say


UpOxygen

'Fiber One' please. Maybe a bread emoji only if you think it looks nice. Your call on that one :)


TLOU2bigsad

How’s it look? I think it’s art.


UpOxygen

Beautiful, thank you. A piece worthy of framing.


Literally-a-kiwi

The loaf of bread is a stroke of genius


Literally-a-kiwi

Special K is my cereal killer name so ' Special K 🥝' Edit: thanks for responding friend 🤗


TLOU2bigsad

How’s that?


Literally-a-kiwi

Special K 🥝


TLOU2bigsad

Haha I meant how does it look? I updated it already does it show on your end


eatmyasserole

This thread with you and u/literally-a-kiwi is so wholesome it makes my head hurt.


Literally-a-kiwi

You're so sweet 💞


Literally-a-kiwi

Lmao sorry text tone misinterpretation 😅😅😅😅 or I'm just kinda stupid ☺️ I dont see it yet I'll reboot 💞💞💞 ETA: yissss it works tysm 🤜🤛


TLOU2bigsad

Nah you’re not stupid. It’s technology that’s stupid. It should have special characters for tone. Glad it’s working!


Literally-a-kiwi

Totally. Thanks for your help. Mods are awesome here 🤗


eatmyasserole

Yes! I hope that whatever mods from GP that make it over here - as either genpop or mods are welcomed lovingly. Mistakes happen. Love is the flightfriends way. Peace love and asseroles.


xenowife

N553CP is making some kind of starfish with their lõõps, clõõps and... squiggles? Columbus. https://fr24.com/N553CP/2970a032


amymonae

yes, that’s def gotta go to the water section in the gallery 😄🤩


xenowife

Wait. Is there a gallery bc I actually looked 🙃 I’m tired.


amymonae

No, not yet. I asked in the FAQ-thread about it right no :) It’s morning here in Vienna, which time zone are you in so I know what to offer: coffee, tea or hot cocoa?


xenowife

Central... I think? Idk what Chicago is 🤔 I had a fussy babyman that needed some attention then we both fell asleep (thankfully) anyway!


xenowife

Oo, neat! I’m still learning to navigate this sub...


amymonae

Ah, I meant my own gallery of ‘flight painting’ collections ;D but hey, that’s a good idea for a post! ✨


xenowife

That’s pretty freakin adorable and awesome. I’m honored to have captured a worthy shot!


Literally-a-kiwi

Can confirm. Def a starfish 😅


xenowife

After dozens of straight routes I finally spot someone getting wacky.


Literally-a-kiwi

It's so satisfying it's kinda weird 😅


xenowife

It really is. I wonder what that says about us as people? Hmmm. Better not scratch that itch, now that I mention it.


Literally-a-kiwi

Let's just let it happen organically, not sure I'm ready for that answer 😅


xenowife

I think that’s wise.


UpOxygen

Pinellas County N2SD conducting loops over East Lake


xenowife

You beat me to it! 👏 I was heading over to Tarpon Springs and caught it.


UpOxygen

Nothing on the scanners unfortunately. Pinellas is always so secretive! At least their helis are labelled!


snowflake711

Is scanner chat still allowed


kellie1970

I certainly hope so.


Literally-a-kiwi

We're all friends here so if you find something interesting I dont see why not? 🤗


KatanaAmerica

Did you hear anything?


TLOU2bigsad

Hmmm we hadn’t discussed it. I think maybe it needs to be relevant to the flights. Go ahead for tonight and the mods can touch base on it for the future.


xenowife

That’s some reasonable moderating ✌️


bigbrainst0ner

It’s necessary


porcelaincatstatue

I found another balloon! This time in the Netherlands making heartbeat patterns. Go check out DOMFE


xenowife

From u/LoneStarGurl: Yikes! Let me see if I recall! Click on your avatar and at the bottom it will say to change your flair. Once you click that, it should bring up colors. Click on one and then edit is at the top right. Then you should be able to type what you want it to say!!


xenowife

They did one hell of a sharp dip then rise at one point. I could never ride a balloon. Just... big nope from me. I don’t like to fly unless I have to... just heights? Nope. I’ll watch from here.


amymonae

I could never ride a balloon either! To me they look really good with or without other people in them 😅 but I love flying and I’m also scared of heights.


bigbrainst0ner

N163 BF responded to the traffic accident on I75 just passed midnight ET. Meanwhile a lifeline helicopter landed in the Carlton Reserve and took off for a trauma center hospital in St Petersburg? The 911 dispatch for doesn’t show information for this helicopter but does show the bay flight accident response. If FBI was out there searching and found BL there would be no radio access to the public nor would they need to go through 911 dispatch for a lifeline chopper. Very interesting.


OrangeCosmos

Here is the history of the medical N166MT, it left at 9:55pm. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N166MT/history/20211009/0224Z/KTPA/KSPG


xenowife

Curious....


LoneStarGurl

And you said the Carlton one was going on before the wreck even happened or no? Wow…super interesting!


xenowife

Hey... hey *pokes*... How did you get your call sign as flair instead of a color?


LoneStarGurl

Yikes! Let me see if I recall! Click on your avatar and at the bottom it will say to change your flair. Once you click that, it should bring up colors. Click on one and then edit is at the top right. Then you should be able to type what you want it to say!!


xenowife

Rad, I’ll give it a go!


LoneStarGurl

Ok! Hoping it works! (Waits patiently to see if another line shows up in name)


xenowife

Success! Some of the options were not easily poked thanks to weird phone shenanigans.


LoneStarGurl

Yay!


KatanaAmerica

Yes, the Carlton heli was back at the hospital before the car crash even happened.


LoneStarGurl

Wow. That really does make you wonder what that’s about!


KatanaAmerica

I’d also like to add that Bayfront hospital is the only trauma center in Pinellas county. Edit: just now saw the info about the car accident heli showing up but not the Carlton one. Interesting


Taylorckramer

Meanwhile, someone tweeted BE four hours ago asking if mental rehabilitation hospitals were obligated to report patient intake if said patient was wanted for crimes... go read it. I’m paraphrasing. They asked about LE oversight/access. Could be completely unrelated but interesting timing.


Many-Kaleidoscope770

Hey friends! I found Y’ALL!! So glad you gave us the warning yesterday that we might be moving. I’m seeing rumblings of some sort of drama today but I have no clue what happened…. I’m so glad to see us all over here! I brought pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting. It’s in the break room.


LoneStarGurl

Welcome! I’ve heard it’s better not to know! Just so happy to see familiar peeps over here!!


heathie_a

Seconded. Just keep watching the skies. ⭐️✈️🛸


xenowife

Learning to loops! https://fr24.com/5BCMG/2970a0cd The Pigeon Aviation School of Cyprus. A possible student is strutting their stuff!


amymonae

this looks gorgeous! what a class loop collection! ✨


xenowife

There’s just something about their size and structure that are different from any that I’ve seen.


amymonae

They’re definitely unique! I wonder if some of them look up their own patterns later and go sth like, ‘Oh, I like this loop style better, I gotta fly more of *those*’ 😅 probably not, but it’d be funny!


xenowife

Oh I’m sure of it! I would!


Farrell21

Gotta get them lööpin’ early


cheska47

Sweet fledgling lööps 🐦💙


xenowife

They are so.. pretty.


xenowife

I’m so scattered that I can’t remember if I checked in. In and out, here and about.. but mostly on the couch. Edit: how are you getting your (non color) call sign as flair?


azwildlotus

Does this help? https://www.reddit.com/r/MtvChallenge/comments/bavlqg/how_to_change_user_flair_on_mobile_step_by_step/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

xenowife

A link from above (and I replied to u with another persons instructions elsewhere but here’s this too): Does this help? https://www.reddit.com/r/MtvChallenge/comments/bavlqg/how_to_change_user_flair_on_mobile_step_by_step/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf


xenowife

I’m patiently waiting on an answer from someone I asked directly. If I get a reply I’ll report back!


porcelaincatstatue

Thanks! It's almost 3 am here, so I'm guessing a lot of folks are asleep.


xenowife

I’m an hour behind you but the one I asked posted about thirty minutes prior to my question so it could go either way with the sleepies. My dog IS belly up snoring with her vibrating schnozz on my baby’s feet.. I’m the only one awake (for now) so it’s highly possible.


ADystopianHouseplant

It is 2 am here and I have things to attend to. Cookie Cwisp, signing off.


kellie1970

Dispatch showing Cookie Cwisp 10-7. Over.


xenowife

How did you get your custom flair? All I see are colors as options.


Farrell21

Just want to give a big thank you for everyone who has shown up tonight. Glad to see traffic still high despite our new office, over a thousand comments and still hours to go on the Night Watch.


BeeBeeBuckley

And a big thank you to *you,* Oatmeal, your hard work has payed off! The entire Patrol is to be commended. We took a lemon morning and turned it into a lemonade day. And we came together through tragedy, postulating theories back and forth...over the weeks, sometimes coughing up water in a squall of controversy, even horror; and, somehow, some way, the patrol has remained together through lööps, diligence, and good old fashion kindness. Love you all. Rice Chex One signing off. Over. 💙


the_sweetest_peach

Hello. 👀


kellie1970

PEeeaaaaaach! I’ve missed you!


the_sweetest_peach

Luda Crisp. I recognize you, cleverly nicknamed fren. Hiiiiii. 💖


Farrell21

Welcome 🍑


Fast_Walrus_8692

Hello! You found us!


the_sweetest_peach

I did! Do you remember me? 😱


Fast_Walrus_8692

I do! lol


kellie1970

Hey guys? Do we need to copy all of the quick links from the Night Patrol introduction post in our old office? I feel like I ran out of there without my purse. 👜


porcelaincatstatue

Yes plz


ADystopianHouseplant

I feel that fire drill prepared us for today.


Farrell21

N911DG out and about, doing late night things


Literally-a-kiwi

Oooh I see you Hillsborough 👀


BeeBeeBuckley

Fam, Blueberry Cobbler has posted [Friday Night Flights 10/8](https://old.reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q4cc3z/friday_night_flights_108/) as a transition thread, so make your way on over and ‘get our usual feel goods going.’ 💙


Maximum-Student2749

Trying on the call sign Fruity pebbles, please let me know if it's already been taken! Lindt chocolate left on the snack table.


doomsouffle

Please tell me there’s dark chocolate!!


Maximum-Student2749

Always!


Literally-a-kiwi

OMFG I *loveeeeeee* Lindt 😍


Maximum-Student2749

It's the best!


Literally-a-kiwi

I love the raspberry dark chocolate and alllll the balls lol


Maximum-Student2749

Lol I love raspberry dark chocolate too!!


fimpster

I never participated much in the the Night Patrol Flight Watch threads, but I did pop over a couple of times every night to see the goings on, have a chuckle and just keep up to speed. Just came by to say hi.


Literally-a-kiwi

Thanks for coming over here to visit! 🤗


kellie1970

I’m so glad you did.


fimpster

I think I was supposed to bring snacks for the break room?


Literally-a-kiwi

We have lots of snacks so help yourself 🤗


Fast_Walrus_8692

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!


fimpster

Thanks Walrus. My wife's favorite animal ;)


Beezle-Mom

Just for Kix (trying it on for size. I like it! Please let me know if it’s already in use) signing off. Can’t keep my eyelids open. Peace and love until tomorrow. ♥️


Literally-a-kiwi

I like it. Sweet dreams friend


Farrell21

I’m digging “Just for Kix.” Take Care!


slimcaiti

May I have a desk near the windows??


Literally-a-kiwi

The whole building is windows bc obvs we need it for watching the skies so yes you may. It's also Rhombicosidodecahedron shaped so there are *a lottttt* of corner offices. Make yourself at home


BeeBeeBuckley

Actually your office is the penthouse with a skylight and a private spa, your desks is next to floor-to-ceiling windows looking down upon the elephant reserve. 🐘


TLOU2bigsad

Depends. Windows 10 or 11?

Hi flight friends, French Toast Crunch here. I’ve been watching the skies with you all from the beginning while I nurse my baby throughout the night. Finally got the courage to post because you guys are the best evening vibes and I love the lööps. I’ve brought some homemade chocolate chip cookies if we don’t have too many sweets?!


ilovemrbelvedere

Welcome from another nursing momma! And thanks for the cookies


Literally-a-kiwi

Bringing up a teeny helicopter pilot! Thanks for spreading the love 💞


Fast_Walrus_8692

So glad you're here!


BigAir1993

Welcome French Toast Crunch! Thank you for the 🍪's. Kick back and enjoy some lööps with us.


Maximum-Student2749

I'll be nursing with you shortly in a few months! Great way to pass the time!


maytheforcereign

It is so soothing for late nights rocking!


Maximum-Student2749

And helps to keep you awake!


SpiceGirl5588

Oh Hawaii time for a little bit but I’m here and ready to lööp with you all. So glad we have a new office. Looks nice!


Turnonyourh3artl1ght

Bayflight (medical) just took off from near the Myakka State Park reserve. https://www.flightradar24.com/N163BF/297090b1


Littleballofdurr

I think he landed on i75 for an accident victim...


Turnonyourh3artl1ght

Looks close you’re probably right.


Zealousideal_Act343

I think it might be an accident on i75?


QuestionPretend9115

He definitely is landing on I 75. I am monitoring Sarasota sheriff, have not heard anything about it.


Turnonyourh3artl1ght

http://fl511.com/EventDetails/District%201/1066376


Turnonyourh3artl1ght

He for sure landed on the interstate and that’s a Pinellas County helicopter in Sarasota County. I’m sure that’s common with Bayflight. But Bayfront is Pinellas for sure.


Zealousideal_Act343

Alight all- I'm gonna hit the hay! Love the new office!! I'll bring good treats tomorrow. I'm taking requests!! Frosty mini signing out! 🌾🌾🌾


kellie1970

Dispatch shows you 10-7. Over.


ADystopianHouseplant

Uhhh, it is 1 am here. more loops!


Farrell21

We demand lööps!


WhatAreYouGoing2Wear

That rascal, Pinellas County Sheriff, went up just to do mini loops next to the airport?? [N2SD](https://www.flightradar24.com/N2SD/29708bb6)


BigAir1993

I enjoy the symmetry of this pattern. It's nice to have upper and lower loops connected by a somewhat tidy line.


Turnonyourh3artl1ght

It’s cool to watch it fly up the highway (US19).


ADystopianHouseplant

Gosh, N2SD - If you're going to be a silly goose go back to the pond.

MariAndys

Goodnight all.. Happy Looping.. And Smile:).... It's another day in paradise..


starseednebula

Golden crisp on active duty. I brought some home made cinnamon rolls, fresh from the oven. Help yourself!


kellie1970

Swoon! Cinnamon Rolls. I think this means we’re serious.


starseednebula

Never mind coveted anything less.


zeppnnon

You bring some extra frosting??
