For the overview on https://www.scramble.nl/community/messa ... /72/162988 I would like to provide a status of the temporarily based KC-135s at ETAD as well. This is what I have now:

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!
All these airframes returned to CONUS with the exception of 59-1508 which should be in the Middle East. Currently the only deployed KC-135 from Fairchild at ETAD is the 62-3537.

Al Kharj, for RCH032 (84-0189). Mission code might suggest support for 52nd FW (source inmarsat log)
