I think that was the flightcheck aircraft that just landed rather than the B52. Might be wrong though.

Expect the crew wanted "gas n go" to get home today. But weather needs to be OK for all phases of flight, including destination airfield and diversion options whilst on the way.

Whilst I've seen the serial reported, for completeness 61-0018 does not carry a tail code or fin tip stripe.

Cheers, Tom

61-0018 hasn't been reported in the UK before and is the 77th B-52H known to have visited Fairford.

I can hear B-52 engines running now. Not sure if testing or getting ready to fly.
