A Swedish Gripen should have visited Bodo today (25th), while a Belgian F16 and a Mildenhall KC135 should have visited Rovaniemi.

QID200 KC-135R 60-0355 went in that direction this morning and hasn't returned (as far as I know). This tanker is fitted with MPRS pods - which will please the probe & drogue refuelling requirement of some participants.

Cheers,

Bob

TARBOX87 F18x2 planned into ENGM (Gardermoen) from EGUL (Lakenheath) on 22.10
TARBOX95 F18x3 planned into ENGM from EGUL on 22.10

However, only 4 of these jets made it on this date, which should be,

166631 AB-106 VFA-11 TARBOX85
166808 AB-204 VFA-211 TARBOX86
166820 AB-300 VFA-136 TARBOX87
166839 AB-411 VFA-81 TARBOX88

166665 AB-210 VFA-211 remains on the ground at Lakenheath.

It is highly likely the 2 C-2As on the USS Harry S Truman are operating from Gardermoen.

Thank you all for the input, updated the original text as much as possible, decided to leave the ship based helo's out of this overview if you don't mind.
