the C.17 will probably stay for a couple of days if it follows previous patterns,
the stansted google group is the most likely place to find last minute info: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/stnae

It's not on my ADSB log today. How did that slip in, or did it not arrive?

Well from what I can now gleam from the Stansted Google Group an individual posted a note about a "Rare" :S C-17A (Can.AF) ... which then changed a Qatari C-17, quite where MAA came from I stll have not discovered! :@

... as it stands I'm not aware of any C-17 CURRENTLY at Stansted but the USAF C-40C is definately there.

Hope this helps someone.

It was due from Cold Lake in Canada, so the poster was trying to inform but didnt have details of the actual aircraft apart from type, so it was presumed to be Canadian Forces.
