Are they parked in the usual place and can they be seen from the road.

Since the KC10 has left Mildenhall and no Notam has be submitted that tomorrows departure will not happen.

Heard elsewhere that Mildenhall has a NOTAM that it’s closed from 1300 today and all day tomorrow. If the Saudis don’t leave this morning then I imagine it’ll be Monday because the tanker won’t be able to leave Mildenhall. Unless they depart over the course of the weekend.

Saw them come out over Watton, lovely sight (and surprised too as they normally leave around 0600)
Cheers,
