Very GOOD. There is one of these routes close to us that the Navy uses every so often. The route is flown with visual reference and a watch. All pilots need to be aware of them. Seeing a or not seeing a jet at 500kts. and 500' will get your attention. :wink:
Enjoy,

A F-18 pilot demonstrating some Low Level Flying skills on VR-1251 over Northern California before crossing into Oregon towards the end of the video. The route the pilot is flying is known as VR-1251 and is used for low level target penetration training as it starts over the Pacific and ends at NAS Fallon Nevada after flying over the Cascade and Sierra mountains. Here’s another cool video of F/A-18 Hornet Pilots.

Son was the Air Boss on the USS Nimitz when this was filmed.
