Clutching at straws but put 166764 in the Search box on the forum's front page and around 4/3/17 it was at Mildenhall with 3 U-28s.

Yes, 3rd March 2017 should be the date. 23577 fits as being the NACHO at the time - and departed before the return lot of U-28s came in.

The other C-130 would be HC-130P 65-0978.....not a USMC one.

U-28s were 08-0700/08-0718/08-0835.

KC-10s were 79-1710 and 84-0188.

F-15s (at Lakenheath) were:-
80-0024 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG
82-0016 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG
84-0002 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG
84-0003 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG
84-0005 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG
84-0020 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG
84-0021 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG
84-0026 F-15C 123FS/OR. ANG

Cheers,

Bob

Sorry that should have read 166380 as per your post. Not sure how I got 166764 :Oops: :S

Bob - the Oregons came into Mildenhall on the 25th March - did they relocate to LN for several days? I wasn't close enough to the action for that long so cannot recall.

Unless of course Glen, you had notes for more than one day!

Nighthawke, they arrived Lakenheath 28th Feb (x6) and 1st March (x2) and were still there on 6th when I saw them. Must have departed on 7th or just after.

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=142635 refers.
Cheers, Bob
