Am I reading too much into this or Is this a sign of a possible re-equip of the 100th with KC46's?

It's likely part of the work up on the type for the crew - transatlantic flights, operating from a forward location, different ATC procedures etc.

Hi all
I saw a couple of Ospreys heading back to Mildenhall at low level just North of Adderbury North Oxon early afternoon. I think I read somewhere today that KC46 delivery had been halted due to ongoing problem.
