Two long-absent visitors returned today:
   FAB 65 is one of the Bolivian Air Force's transports that used to be a
regular visitor. He usually stopped at Patrick before continuing to Opa Locka.
   NASA 963, my favorite NASA T-38, is always a heartwarming visitor.
   The Hurricane Hunters continue to fly all around us, heard here and on HF
comms throughout the entire day (and even now as I type this at 4:29am
Tuesday).
