    ON Drill weekends there is a C-130 that goes from Peterson AFB in Colorado Springs, CO to Kirtland AFB, NM then down to Biggs AAF in El Paso, TX and back. Peterson passenger terminal has a facebook page at where the flights can be viewed. Calling Biggs and/or Kirtland is a hit or miss activity.

      Thank you for the information. It’s always good to hear of flights that have some kind of consistency, especially from the States that don’t have much activity, like Colorado and New Mexico.
