Mysterious late-night military flights headed for San Jose

SAN JOSE -- Charter flights from the U.S. military will be taking off and landing at Mineta San Jose International Airport during the next few weeks -- but it's all very mysterious.

Airport spokesman David Vossbrink says the military is not providing any details about the flights, but there will be a significant number of them.

"Our tentative schedule for the next couple of weeks shows about 30 or so -- maybe a few more -- military charter flights coming through San Jose's airport," Vossbrink said. "Most of these flights will be during normal operating hours, and most of those flights will not be coming through the terminal area, so most passengers won't notice them."

Vossbrink says a handful of the flights could take off from or land at the airport during its night- time curfew.

As to where the flights are headed and what the troop movement through San Jose is all about -- the Pentagon won't say.

than SFO or Oakland. And this part of CA has been owned by the MIC forever.
