NASA 926 (Martin WB-57F aircraft reg # N926NA) should be flying over SoCal this evening. In case anyone wants to monitor they can be heard on 230.500 talking to 'MRT Command'. The flights seem to last about 4 hours and have been at operating at 49,500 ft.

Here is the flight tracking log: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/NASA926
Your tracked aircraft NASA926 has just filed a flight plan. It is scheduled to depart KRIV (March Arb) at 06:10PM PDT

update:

On the other hand NASA 928, 926′s sister plane, is currently deployed to MCAS Miramar for what the NASA’s program website calls “”BACN JUON 2012 I&T” which sounds like integration and testing for the BACN (Battlefield Airborne Communications Node) under a JUON (Joint Urgent Operational Need) contract signed in 2012.

BACN payloads are believed to include sensors and antennas used by the WB-57 to relay comms between command and control centers and ground troops located within valleys and ridges in the Afghanistan mountains.

According to the NASA website, NASA 928 will operate from Miramar until Sept. 15, 2012, then it will be back in Houston until leaving for a CONUS deployment from Oct. 4 to Dec. 14, 2012. Since the aircraft is not scheduled to depart for Afghanistan soon, it may be testing payloads to be carried by other planes.

I don't know if this is related or not: Early this afternoon I heard RAIDER 5-1 (USMC C-130, VMGR352 Miramar) on 249.875. He was talking to (?) Control, telling them he'd call them when he was two minutes out. A few minutes later he gave that time marker. A few minutes after that he reported "Jumpers away, eleven good chutes". About five minutes later "Jumpers away, ten good chutes". Then he said he was going back to March. I never heard the "Control" transmitter, but based on the signal strength of RAIDER 5-2 he had to be very close. Does anyone know where he was operating or what he was doing (besides releasing the jumpes, of course)?
