Re: Lajes - USAF KC-135 arrival 21/11/20

No problem, Al. Miscodes are a pain in the arras, but it is useful to keep up with them. :)

Incidentally, "OTIS" is the usual VMGR-252 callsign, which was how I picked up the miscode originally.......viewtopic.php?f=33&t=190182

Re: Lajes - USAF KC-135 arrival 21/11/20

No. Miscoded box. The aircraft involved was VMGR-252 KC-130J 165810/BH going back home, having been replaced on the "BRONCO" detachment at Moron by 169534 (arrived 18/11 as "OTIS81").

It was 84-0015 that departed in June.

Also, 98-0133 departed in June and not April. Only two left in April.

Re: Website ADS-B.NL update !

......... I just found out where 58-0055, my last KC-135 is - last flew from Kadena to Naha 26/10/2020 so still Japan based. I've told you several times that it is Kadena based, Mike. Actually, it went to Yokota on 26th as PEARL19 and, as I type, is in the air returning to Kadena. Point remember is...

Re: Request: List of resident Hercs present on 12th September

Hi GOOSE,

The following should have been present somewhere:-
08-6205
09-5713
09-6207
12-5760
13-5776
13-5778
13-5786

However, as I wasn't there, I cannot say which ones were on "SOG Row" and/or which (if any) were hangared.

Cheers,

Bob

Re: 48th Fighter Wing - Last Noted

84-0027 is believed (by process of elimination) to be the sole still unidentified one of the three unreported ones that went to CONUS on 02/05/2018 - 91-0309 and 01-2003 since deduced as the other two.

84-0015 went to rework on 19/06/2020
