You sure was a C-17 as no reports of a C-17 currently operating from Brize Norton.
There are currently 2x A400M up (ZM408/RRR4130 & ZM410/RRR477)

Haven't heard of anything funny about 43C6CF so should still be ZK317, bur 43C48F is now ZK318.

Managed to get a gander at the RSAF C-130 - don't know whether it's been reported before, but it now wears a grey colour scheme. After a drought of visits lasting about 18 months (the last one I noted was just before Xmas, 2016), we've had two in a fortnight. Hopefully more to come in the rest of 2018

The Saudi C-130 looks to be the same two tone blue/grey as used on their Typhoons
