Where is flight watch for tonight???

I'm glad most of the team made it. Hopefully things will settle down a little over there...

I joined but weird that it isnt pinned here right?


kwitcher-kvetchin

LOL "AutoMod" finally reports for duty, plaintively wails "come baaack, come baaack"


kwitcher-kvetchin

Sub impoded today. Probably better to follow links elsewhere.


eatmyasserole

I think we're figuring out the kinks as we go. And fun fact I learned the other day: there's a max of 2 pins per sub/thread at any given time! Edit: disregard this response, I thought your comment was made on the other thread. Yea, I think the mods are busy and from what I understand a couple even deactivated their accounts? Idk.


Strange_Dog_173

Toasted pop tarts checking in. Watching N911K making some nice loops. Maybe BL up here not AT?


CainnicOrel

Since it looks like we're no longer getting our nightly thread here I started on over in Flight Friends for us https://www.reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q4cc3z/friday\_night\_flights\_108/


Luna920

Why would there not be one tonight ?


Mjkittens

https://reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q3w362/sky_patrol_october_8_2021/ Everyone’s already in the break room, someone with the keys has just gotta figure out how to pin it to the top

Lol, I appreciate your honesty.

[new sub](https://www.reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q3w362/sky_patrol_october_8_2021/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) same flight friends


Fast_Walrus_8692

Did the office close from Covid? Where is everybody? I don't see a new thread for October 8?


jmstgirl

There you are! We’ve moved. [new office](https://www.reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q3w362/sky_patrol_october_8_2021/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)


porcelaincatstatue

Why tho? Sudden change gives me anxiety 🥴


jmstgirl

Me too 😣 but there was some [disorder ](https://www.reddit.com/r/GabbyPetito/comments/q3w96o/deleted_thread_awards/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) this morning.


eatmyasserole

Hmm I wonder if the mods are open to changing default sort order to New, as opposed to Best. This thread works because you can always come to the top and chitter chatter with whoevers online.


Fast_Walrus_8692

That's a good idea. I didn't immediately recognize that we had moved because when I popped in over there, the top comment was from 11 hours ago.


eatmyasserole

Same. And I think one of the great thing about flightfriends is that we try to give most everyone a response. Yea I messaged the mods about it. But I understand if they don't just change it for one person's request. And yes I know I can change each thread, but I forget.


kwitcher-kvetchin

Their passion for graphic design kept them busy.


Fast_Walrus_8692

I agree regarding responding to everyone. It's one of the things that makes the sub so welcoming.


eatmyasserole

Also that thread seems to auto collapse comments? No me gusta Edit: mostly because I'm usually the lowest comment lol


harvmeister

Anyone see N89936? Weather seems to be jamming things up in Orlando, but what is this about?? Took off from MCO and hour ago, made a loop down south and is now headed back to MCO?


elen99_

Any of you still on this thread? Stuff went down on this sub today and I'm in need of non hostile discussing


BeeBeeBuckley

The fact that it is deleted says so much.


elen99_

There are [screenshots](https://m.imgur.com/a/zpTS1oQ) if you're interested


Kaonashi_NoFace

Wowza, looks like they turned Gabby's murder into a disco.


Kaonashi_NoFace

EEK!


JessandGun

I missed stuff again I think!


elen99_

The original thread has been deleted, but the gist is that mods created awards for this sub which were not well received


elen99_

Well [this happened](https://www.reddit.com/r/GabbyPetito/comments/q3qlnj/we_have_created_special_community_awards_for_the/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share)


kattastic28

Holy Christ on a cracker!! They couldn't be serious! Wait, but they were?! Nooo. Just a big fat giant HELL TO THE NO!!!!! 🤢🥵🤢


poopy_buttfart

Why is nobody considering the fact that he may be dead aswell


UpOxygen

If he was dead, chances are they would know due to a lot of buzzards circling. That's according to someone who knows the reserve well. That's assuming he's even in the reserve. An experienced marshal believes he wasn't even there at all. But that's all for another thread.


Kaonashi_NoFace

So true, in that heat the odour would be strong, detected by cadaver dogs and buzzards for sure! ...unless he's inside an alligator.


elen99_

I think they are considering it, it's just not the outcome people want


ouijamate

Ok is it just me or does Germany have A LOT of highways? I have my map on hybrid mode and it’s giving me a headache looking over there 😳


Kaonashi_NoFace

Yeah they have autobahns, you can drive up to 130km/80mph.


truecrimeKC

They do, and they drive VERY fast on those highways. Scared me to death!


elen99_

They have no speed limit on a lot of highways in Germany


agpdap

Is y’all get bored look over Houston bunch of planes flyin in groups and loops practicing for the air show at the air force base this weekend


UpOxygen

I've never seen the icon N20TF has before


agpdap

Tomorrow and Sunday are the air show so you’ll see a ton of stuff in the air


Kaonashi_NoFace

Neither have I, is that the symbol used for aerobatic stunt panes?


UpOxygen

Maybe, or perhaps fighter planes? That would be the only type of fighter plane I'd expect to be tracked by the radar honestly.


Kaonashi_NoFace

That's even better. I'm still hoping to see a drone.


agpdap

They take off from the air base all the time keep an i out and you will see a drone, they are huge like 10x bigger than the one they been flying at the reserve


UpOxygen

First time I saw a glider aircraft on there I thought it was a drone. Insane how many there usually are if you go down to Australia on the app.


angel_kink

Sick as hell today and took the day off work. Just now woke up at 11:00am. Looks like I missed another banner plane? Who the hell is spending money on this?? Lol. Like it’s funny but I hope they are donating equal amounts to either the Gabby Petito Foundation or another relevant org. Those things aren’t cheap. And it looks like I also missed… *checks the rest of the sub* uhhh yeah nah I’m staying here. That’s a whole mess. Gonna stick to lööps.

Sweet!


truecrimeKC

Feel better!


GabagoolSoprano

N821SP - Massachusetts State Police in Florida???


concernedstateworker

Yep! I noticed this too.


truecrimeKC

Lots of loops over FDS


alissnyc

Any more details?


SlammedAway

Hellä lööpy up in here: https://www.flightradar24.com/N74911/296f0ec1


eskimoboob

I think that is the plane with the banner flying over the Laundrie's house.


SlammedAway

Omg I don’t even realize that was happening again today 🤣 sorry I’m out of the lööp!


blue_slushie

Unrelated....listening to the scanner and there is a little girl with a broken arm at school. I hope she gets an ice cream cone or popsicle while waiting to go to the hospital, poor girl!


concernedstateworker

Hahaha I know! I heard that too! The guy was like, “she’s conscious, in the clinic.” What elementary school has its own medical clinic?! When I was a kid we just had a little office next to the principal’s office with a cot and a secretary who could *maybe* do CPR...


angel_kink

I broke my arm at school when I was 7 and the principal told me “you’re fine. Just a little sore. Go back to class.” She was completely surprised when I came back to school with a cast the next day 🙄 Good luck to this kid lol.


Fun_Strawberry_3344

Wow that would NOT fly these days


angel_kink

Good to hear. This was in the early 90’s.


Fun_Strawberry_3344

We must be around the age


Typeintomygoodear

Damn, I broke my arm when I was 7, what a bad day she’s having…hope she picks a cool color for her cast!


Maximum-Student2749

Is this flight over the Laundries house? I know they live near north port... https://fr24.com/N74911/296f0ec1


QuestionPretend9115

Somehow this reminds me of Surrender Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz


SlammedAway

Haha I kept thinking that too!!


Lshear

Someone said banner plane over their house on discord


kellie1970

Yes. That’s the banner plane that someone hired to fly over their home.


WalmartDanaScully

I was wondering if someone did that again


WalmartDanaScully

Looks like it. I believe they are Wabasso from what I've gathered


bethhhcomeaux

https://twitter.com/claudiakellyb/status/1446528449255034881?s=21


Maximum-Student2749

Ah, a quick google search confirmed it is!


bethhhcomeaux

Yes, this is a banner plane flying over right now.


Typeintomygoodear

It’s the plane with the banner “End the silence. Justice for Gabby”


Known_Geologist1

There is a guy on tik tok i follow that his followers are funding the flyovers...both last week and today


truecrimeKC

Can I just make a rule if you are flying over Myakka/Carlton, you are on OUR radar, and thus required to do at least one loop? Just sayin...😁


Fun_Strawberry_3344

We should radio everyone that goes over and request lol


Typeintomygoodear

Anyone on the scanners atm? There is chatter on Twitter about BL on the scanners. Edit: [Here is the audio](https://twitter.com/Shley713/status/1446521226470387723?s=20)


Matthew1581

Hey folks, Chicago Radio Guy chiming in: Many have expressed interest in learning how to set up a ground station for tracking aircraft. Last night I brought up the fact that I’m making a wiki for how to do this. In light of recent events in this Sub, I’ll be posting it to r/flightfriends instead of the night discussion thread either tonight/tomorrow. We really needed our own sub ( hence why flightfriends was created ) because while our mission remains the same, this sub has turned out to be full of toxicity and drama on the main thread including the awards fiasco, and much more. I am being 100% sincere when I tell you that I truly enjoy our nightly discussions, flight tracking, and all around shenanigans during the slow times with no activity in the area. It is my hope that you’ll all join us over there at flightfriends where we can continue to monitor and track flights, loops, zigs, zags, and sky skribbles as we’ve done here for so long. I appreciate all of the flightfriends family who show up each night ready to scan the skies. I hope you’ll joins us over there, we always have snacks in the back room, and an HR team who loves to drug test us and do fire drills. Matt


cywilder

Shit... I didn't know about the drug tests...


Matthew1581

Me either.. when I told them I was gonna score high on the test they didn’t find it as funny as I did. Gotta love HR.


azwildlotus

I’ll see y’all over there tonight!


jmstgirl

Wonderful words Matt. See you later in the break room! 🛩👋🏻🤗


BeeBeeBuckley

[Here’s a link to what’s going on over there](https://old.reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q3w362/sky_patrol_october_8_2021/)


HedgehogJonathan

I wonder if they'll find BL soon or in a few years. I am so lost with the story now, have no idea if I think he's alive or dead anymore. Or even where. At least the domestic violence awareness is going up. So even if there are no search planes to follow at the moment, I still feel that at least something good came out of this mess, too. Like Night Patrol and young kids noticing some shady relationships their friends get in to. I haven't slept a decent number of hours for a week now. And not due to plains, just a lot, a lot of work at once. So I kinda hope that there might be some news after I've taken a night or two off for snoring.

Immaduck

Oh good catch! If the last week is any sign, there should be 1-2 more that go active in Florida around 4PM EDT


CainnicOrel

There was a few of the same last night, one did about 4 hours of constant loops at 23k over Virginia Beach


Littleballofdurr

VA Beach I'd expect to see P-8's... looping/flying over the Laundrie search area... seems a little more unusual. [Here's a couple screenshots of the P-8's flight path... ](https://imgur.com/a/PlWBwT9)


Angiringsitup

Side note: do hot air balloon’s show up on the app? It’s balloon fiesta right now, and tomorrow morning will be the big mass a ascension. For those of you in more eastern time zones, you should see what it looks like here in Albuquerque, NM between 6am-830am MDT. I will likely be up (I’m not usually) because my dog Marty turns into Don Quixote with those things. We call them dragons.


AchieveUnachievable

I’m going to take the weekend off, especially from the gen. discussion that’s becoming a little heated and toxic. Here’s to hoping I’ll receive a news alert on my found stating that BL has been found. Have a great weekend everyone 😊 Over and out.


Fast_Walrus_8692

Take care and enjoy your time away!


Littleballofdurr

N171RA looping by the park https://fr24.com/N171RA/296e7953 Cessna 172 registered to Cirrus Aviation 🤔


Skyclub66

I’m seeing that too… baby loops …. Hmm


Littleballofdurr

N367LA is up...


Farrell21

For any stragglers that come by here, come join us at /r/FlightFriends , a dedicated space to all things tracking.


Noisy_Toy

I think we should stop the nightly threads in here. I’m so tired of reading people slagging us for answering questions— when they post about JB’s hair products for hours.


k2_jackal

you guys are fine... don't let the whiny folks get you down


MariAndys

I plan on.. Considering that I have some volley SAR experience from many years ago.. Back when we didn't have the cool tech that they have today.. I came here because of that to see how it's done now.. That being said.. I have learned a lot about these new toys.. Ooopps.. TOOLS !!! from this thread.. Even though this event is more of a manhunt than a SAR mission ( SAR only gets assigned for evidence recovery during manhunts cause we were not LEO's but get along well ) I'm still interested in the tech used today.. Sure beats getting tired and wet boots from all day work.. But the guidelines are the same.. We also understood that no matter what.. We were assigned a task to complete and didn't get involved in the investigation/evidence side of them except finding something.. After a few you did realize that evidence is important.. That's why I am here.. Not my job to speculate on the investigation though we always did just like the other gen thread people.. And would only give opinions on what facts we knew.. Now if we would have had a FLIR drone back then.. I would have assigned myself to that operation.. :).. And who knows.. Might be a cool thing to bring to the table in a rural area with no funding for such tools.. Then again.. Retired is nice.. Have A Nice Day..

Thanks! I joined! Looking forward to learning more!

Over the reserve now N28655 from Sarasota https://fr24.com/N28655/296e2c4b


Quiet_Government_741

It landed now but deffy a wierd flight path over that area certainly looks like it was looking but nothing found... Also that's deffy a wang there.


truecrimeKC

Looks like maybe refueling??? Not the airport he came from.


ladycad

Yeah, who is that?? That’s quite a flight path, but seems too high to see much on the ground.


Fun_Strawberry_3344

Couldn't find much info apart from a private company and doesn't seem LE involved


truecrimeKC

And MAJOR loops!


LintotheJ35

watching the loops. Good morning from Utah.


DangReadingRabbit

Might be time to move each evening’s activities to /r/FlightFriends if they’ll have us. Edit: oh I see now the [new digs are set up already](https://reddit.com/r/FlightFriends/comments/q3w362/sky_patrol_october_8_2021/) 🥰


jmstgirl

We will have you. Come on over!


Immaduck

Hey y'all.. made the mistake of posting in the general thread.. they're rabid this morning, do not engage. I repeat, do not engage.


MidLifeCrisisUnit

Please don’t subject yourself to that. It does not end well for almost everyone. You deserve kindness not hostility. Also, Please move over to the Flight Friends sub if you aren’t there already. I went this morning snd it’s lovely and the same great energy and loads of the same peeps. I love your links at night so I hope I see you there 🤗✈️

N28655 looping around the reserve. I know it’s not nighttime, but it’s still dark here in UT.


truecrimeKC

N28655 doing loops over the Reserve now. Private owner plane and pretty high up.


truecrimeKC

He's at Myakka actually, but pretty serious looping.


truecrimeKC

Anybidy more knowledgeable have a guess what is going on here?


LintotheJ35

Myakka , sorry. Need more espresso. He is heading south. Watching to see where he’s heading.

Y’all are TOO MUCH! In a good way! Old school internet vibes in this thread. Definitely a cool group and i’m impressed with the team work and organization of stickies. I’m out of the lööp on almost all of this stuff but just wanted to say i’m impressed with this sub-sub


NefariousOwl

Ahh you nailed why this is sub-sub is so great! It’s like the beginning of the Internet where everyone felt like they were part of a team and genuinely wanted to help. I’m not good at keeping up with the lööps but I very much enjoy this vibe.

Squidwards_m0m

[email protected] if you’re unhappy with the mods please email. I’ll be leaving as well, I wasn’t a fan of the way this subreddit is run and now the mods are locking everything because they don’t want to own up.


thementaltyrant

They have now removed it, and now removed, after locking comments, on a new thread they started this morning because the backlash. For a sub with 20 moderators and an automod, you'd think they'd have some dignity and know how to run things better. Welcome to Reddit


Bucktown_Riot

What was it? Looks like I just missed it.


holaporfavorgracias

[here you go](https://imgur.com/a/zpTS1oQ)

Thank you! I missed it as well.


thementaltyrant

Just read around what you can, fast, cuz they are purging all criticism as we speak.


Buendiamacando

Damn came in for the tail end of this then the post got removed. Yeah I also think it’s time to get out of here tbh


lilmikeyboy

Hey everyone I missed what happened with the awards…. Anyone care to give me a synopsis?


Lakes_on_Water

If you click the reddit awards button and sort by community you can still see them. I'm guessing it was accompanied by a distasteful post from one of the mods?


lilmikeyboy

Ok I’ve been brought up to speed and my eyes are still rolling.


murmalerm

I appear to have missed something and that seems a good thing


MidLifeCrisisUnit

I just came on to say good morning to all my favorite flight friends, and this whole sub exploded and everyone is so mad. I’m lost? I mean I always am, but I’m really lost right now?


ADystopianHouseplant

Looks like they finally deleted it. Made an awards system for the sub surrounding Gabby. Much distaste, such wow.


rxallen23

Deleting it is not enough. An apology needs to happen. That's so beyond tone deaf.


ADystopianHouseplant

Looks like its coming.


rxallen23

Still waiting... what in the AF is going on? Say sorry. Remove awards. Put the daily discussion back up. And get on with it. It's not complicated. This isn't rocket science.


ADystopianHouseplant

Daily is back up. Apparently the mods who have the ability to remove aren't online.


rxallen23

Too late. I'm out. This place is not worth my energy anymore.


Buendiamacando

I missed the part about how the donations would go to Reddit? If so, that’s the part that’s deeply fucked to me. This whole subreddit has become so toxic


thementaltyrant

r/declineintocensorship


ADystopianHouseplant

When you buy awards the money goes straight to reddit. A portion of that money goes to coins for the mods to give awards.


Buendiamacando

Oh god. Yeah I’m down to abandon ship here y’all …


Noisy_Toy

Reddit awards have always been a way to make money for the site. I’m guessing the mods just thought users would enjoy some customization, like flair. Poorly thought through and rather tasteless, but not a money grab.


Buendiamacando

Ok that makes more sense. Tone deaf for sure, also kinda creepy and obsesive. Either way, ready to settle in at r/FlightFriends

ADystopianHouseplant

Its deleted. Let's see what the mod team has to say. Looks like it was a newer one who created it.


AnAussiebum

Do you mind giving me/us a quick rundown of what they posted? Cheers.


ADystopianHouseplant

Made an award system that you pay real money to Reddit. Someone has screenshots of the original thread. Ex. Van Life, etc.


witfenek

Do you have the screenshots?


AnAussiebum

...wtf. Whoever came up with that should be removed as a mod. Heck, all of them that allowed it to go ahead should be removed. Disgusting.
