What has been a very cool experience is to be hunting in Superior Valley and have them do an on deck fly over while they try to catch the little target jets (t38s ???). Very cool time out!

Worse case, he was doing his (or her) normal training route, saw some people and decided to give you a small air show out of fun. You got a cool treat from an aviator, not a scare tactic. They have enough on their plate monitoring the aircraft systems and staying on schedule. Posse commitatus is still strongly enforced.
>A lot of you are freaking out over non-existent boogeymen. What you should be asking yourselves is what really led to the BLM policy. As a lurker on this list for a couple of years, I've noticed a few of you, through your arrogance and willingness to disregard existing laws and regulations, probably contributed directly to the change. Those of us trying to take the high road have to suffer.

The pilot turned the jet sideways, matched our altitude and hit his afterburners just to let us know that he knew we were there. He flew so close to us that we could see his helmet and face-shield as he turned his head to get a better look at us.

>> No, we were not doing anything wrong and Dr. bunch was extremely angry about being buzzed so close because it startled all us and we could have lost our footing on the steep slopes.
