While I wouldn't go as far as to say "that's it for today" its certainly not looking good! Another consideration to possibly factor in is that its Thanksgiving Day tomorrow and they may have a shorter working day so people can start the holiday early.

Listening with a Bearcat BCT 15X

Everything talks but only some Ping - And they say there's nothing to listen too!

Yep, French Navy Falcon serial 32 - did 1 ILS overshoot at 0938 then off to Bremen. Tower had to open up in a hurry to accommodate it! When word gets around that Fairford is open then this sort of thing is likely to happen more often.

Suspect the C-5 might be trying to get away before the 44th Anniversary of its only other visit!
