How dare you suggest that the KC-10 would be the reason, I really cannot see why you would even suggest it, wash your mouth out that man! :whistle:

Mark. I think you had better wash your mouth out with soap. The reason that the B52 has not departed is that KC-10 86-0030 (Roma 21) is going to refuel it. I would guess that it might depart on an air test (as it has had 4 engines off) with enough fuel to recover but if all goes OK it will refuel from the KC10 and head home. It should have left Saturday but the KC10 went tech. The same happened today.
