But don't forget the Minnesota (and Wisconsin?) ANG F-16s are due across for Frisian Flag very soon.

Potential for confusion?

Scramble reports that the six at Nellis are wearing their Saudi serials (0628-0633). There must be a chance that they will go from Nellis across to (say) Seymour Johnson/Eglin, and then across to Lajes/Moron/Rota and on down the Med.

Two of the six have been tied up to their FMS serials:-
0630 = 12-1066
0631 = 12-1071

another two POSSIBLE ties up reported on Scramble 0628/12-1040 , 0629/12-1065 info from photos on Saudi Twitter site & assuming the aircraft are line up in Saudi serial order 0628-0633

as for delivery i would have through that there is a good chance they will go back to St Louis to be prepped for delivery flight
presumably Boeing are responsible for delivery to customer or then again it would seem possible that they have already been handed over to the Saudi's
& they will be responsible for the delivery flight but with a return to St Louis still possible

628 12-1040
629 12-1065
630 12-1066
631 12-1071
632 TBC
633 12-1073

The ‘0’ in front of the Saudi serial has been painted on by mistake and will be removed.

As for the delivery, why speculate?! Once they move they will be picked up and reported. FYI, they will deliver from Nellis but will have to make a stop on the east coast of the USA before they cross the pond.

Mark

I think you might find that an operational Saudi AF Sqn isn't going to go all the way to Red Flag and then leave the Jets back at St Louis for the Boeing guys to do the job of flying them back. Saudis do have their own tankers.

This batch of 6 jets were flown from St Louis to Nellis for RF and are now on their way to the east coast of the USA with a USAF KC-10. They will cross the pond in the next day or two on their way to KSA.

Gold01 dropped the Saudis off after they had finished refuelling. H83 at FL250 is still in a refuelling block. The others are too high so have obviously finished.
