Possible F-15SA Delivery Flight - No.3

Post by TonyO » Thu Mar 23, 2017 9:42 am

I am told that delivery flight No.3 will come through as early as March 25 from St Louis, but given a Saturday arrival, could result in jets going into Mildenhall unless Lakenheath opens?

Gold 32 has gone on to Cleveland center which is a black hole on live ATC

Bangor ground KBGR is excellent for the next tanker and Boston center

Gold31 received departure clearance from Bangor and cleared to start at pilots discretion
