The nice thing about the Detroit River is that you don't know what you are going to see sometimes.
Well, sometimes it's a certainty that you will see the moon there. Or is it a space station?
Occasionally you will see general aviation aircraft, although I don't know what kind this is.
If the conditions are right, you will see planes from either Detroit Metro or the airport near Windsor. I believe this is an Airbus 319 or 320.
A couple weeks ago, I saw Yankee Lady which is the Yankee Air Force B-17. Tonight I saw the Yankee Warrior, which is their B-25.
The B-25 Mitchell Bomber is famous for the Doolittle Raid over Tokyo in April 1942. The Doolittle Raiders trained to take off from aircraft carriers, which was a pretty tough task. They didn't inflict heavy damage on Tokyo but they did strike a moral victory for a nation which was short of those.
I believe this is a Robinson helicopter.
I see a few of these around California.
The Border Patrol boat.
And the Coast Guard heading somewhere.
Well, I will be heading up to the Soo Locks for Engineer's Day and I can't wait.
