New tanker deployment?

Post by patrick dirksen »

KC-135 57-1488 seems to be inbound Geilenkirchen, and 58-0094 is following the same path. The new tanker detachment?

57-1488 departed on the 30th as RCH116. Did some flying in NL TMA-D before heading West.

Maintenance issue, now diverting to Mildenhall. Now calling an emergency, squawking 7700.
58-0094 left before as Reach 141.

RCH116 did some orbiting over Brabant, NL broadcasting squawk 7700 (emergency). It seemed to be inbound Mildenhall, but made a 180 over the British coastline.

Hello,
Planning a quick visit to Geilenkirchen today. Anyone knows if the tanker deployments are still on? Many thanks for your replies.
