So the Atlas Air Dreamlifter (Atlas Air (5Y) #8424) just flew over my house en route from BWI to Lackland and is scheduled to go to Pope next. Anyone have any idea of the cargo for this big bird?

I was working in the yard when I heard it coming. Don't get a lot of 747s around here and it was quite the edifice. Grabbed my iPad and called it up on my Dump1090 and it was only at 1850 ft of altitude and my house is at 1210 feet so that put him at 640 AGL. Something that big and that low is pretty cool to see!

Since you enjoy seeing the 747s, I recommend a visit to the Boeing plant in Everett, Washington, should you ever visit the Seattle area. This is the plant where 747, 767, and 777 aircraft are built. It is an awesome tour!

Actually I have been there and I really enjoyed it. They have a great museum at Everett Field. More recently I have been able to fly twice in business class on American's new 787s. I think that is the closest I will ever come to space travel in my lifetime. It is one sweet ride.
