There is currently a Galaxy at fairford RCH280 which arrived from the states yesterday empty. Could be a candidate for picking the choppers back up.

Yes - covered in 2 or 3 threads in Mess/Heads Up sections. If you are interested just stick AF1 or similar in the search box.

I think it was the one that night stopped at Stansted which from memory was 13-08137. But it was one of two using the same hexcode AE599F.

The C-17 just into Northolt originated at Mildenhall. Just to clarify, neither MLD nor MDH are correct codes for that airfield, being Malad and Southern Illinois Airport respectively.

Just read the forum rules twice and unless I am missing it cannot see anywhere that airfield codes are not to be used.
