Around 6 130's left just before 12.00 local to the East.
Also on SBS are 5 German C160's and 1 Dutch C130, callsign Garlic 1 till 6, they are operating out of Saarbrucken instead of RS.

It looks like the German and Dutch are going for Hohenfels, the US are going to Romania where they are due to drop around 14.00 (UTC or local?)
A further 5 or 6 C130J's are now airborne, so i guess it's busy there.
ps : Viking 90 on FR24 Fl190 just south of Vienna at 13.05 local time. Dutch C130 West of Ingolstadt at 6000ft, so for Hohenfels i suppose. Two C130J's (RAF) Omen 01 and 02 are just south of Ramstein climbing 11000 ft also to the East.

I guess you saw 4 C130J's of 317AG in the morning?, another 4 of those are still at St Johns, i guess these will cross the Ocean tomorrow or Monday. Not sure if they will go to Ramstein, as i suppose RS is only opening at 13.00hours, so perhaps Mildenhaal or Stuttgart?
Btw i don't think these are related to Swift Response anymore....
Pieter,
