First stop after leaving the Hotel was Dillingham Airfield right in the NW Corner of Oahu Island. This is home to the Gliding and Skydiving activities on the Island. Besides the Caravans below there were about half a dozen light on the apron. No gliders out being a weekday but judging by the size of the hanger I would imagine quite a number here.

Noted on a visit 1145 – 1215

Then I followed Highway 76 up to Wheeler AAF. Not expecting to see much here I found a piece of rough ground on the far side of the field with a few locals and watched the action Noted between 1305 – 1500

There were many more present that were mainly nose on so unable to read.

I then headed back to HNL for the rest of the day.

Today they have been on 22s which is unusual. I was therefore able to read the following F22’s this afternoon which departed in two waves.

HH 047, 053, 054, 057, 080

TY 092. 093

I leave Honolulu early tomorrow on the next leg of my trip. I will report back tomorrow eve with anything new noted plus a log for my onward destination. Hopefully my flight is on time tomorrow as it departed 3 hours late this morning!
