In most situations concerning the controlling of air-traffic at any airport. In my flight experience as an pilot in command of a single engine aircraft of various types. Fastmover refers to high a performance aircraft and slow-mover will refer to a civilian or the like, or a non high-performance aircraft.

Extreme caution and care must be taken in the handling or the airspace management of these 2 different types of aircraft. Issues of concern are spacing and landing characteristics hince fast or slow mover. In reviewing the text version of the communication traffic, I have concluded there is no special reference to any exotic black op bird, do to a second fast mover was also awaiting clearance for takeoff from groom tower. Which has me to suspect the normal Airforce variety of aircraft ie F-15, F-16 or the like, but in all open honesty I could be in error or they could be playing with the newer JSF birds out there, until they go to edwards for overal and longterm flight eval ops, etc.
