58-0035 KC-135R 92nd/141st ARW/no markings arrived when?
58-0103 KC-135T 92nd/141st ARW/no markings arrived when?
61-0267 KC-135R 92nd/141st ARW/no markings. left when?
62-3519 KC-135R 22nd ARW "McConnell" left? when ?
59-1508 KC-135R 92nd ARW Arrived when?
63-8018 KC-135R 173rd ARS Arrived 9/5

Could you please share some data on when they arrived, if they left and if so when ?

Thanks!

According to ads-b data for sure 29-4 with first mission from ETAD on 3-5. It left ETAD on 5-3 to Letiste Prague and after a local missions on the 8th returned on the 9th to ETAD.

Good initiative Frank! Not sure if you want to include it, but for me personally it's interesting which ones are MPRS-equipped. As these accompany the Growlers.. I know at least 80035 is.

Cheers, Bart

I think this should be:

59-1508 KC-135R 92nd ARW. Arrived 6-5-22
63-8018 KC-135R 173rd ARS. Arrived 29-4-2022 (shortly left and returned 9-5-22)

58-0103 recovered at Incirlik but could return to Spang later.

58-0035 went as well to Turkey today, both with LAGR callsign so expect them to return at some point.

It should be noted that the non MPRS tankers are sometimes flying with BDA (Boom Drogue Adapters), so it is likely but not a given combination with the Growlers.
