There are a surprising number of TBFs/TBMs still around these days, most of them were aerial fire bombers used or hired by the Forest Service.

Another controlled burn like your PAVE PAWS announcement?

Draken Mirage fighter. Must have been an aggressor squadron ac. Got confused for a second. Draken is a Swedish fighter but the company that operates the adversary training aircraft is named Draken as well.

Hawaii-Based F-22s Scrambled On FAA's Request But Nobody Will Say Why

Quote
Apair of F-22 Raptors were launched on an alert scramble out of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on Sunday at around 4:00 PM local time. A third F-22 joined the mission about an hour after pair's departure. A KC-135 was also launched to support the fighters. Hawaii News Now reports that the scramble, described as an "irregular patrol," was initiated at the request of the Federal Aviation Administration, which reported an 'incident,' although nobody is providing any clear information in regards to what that catalyst for the prolonged scramble mission was.
