It is a mis-coded box and ADS-B should be showing it as 10-0052.

This one along with (previously based) 11-0059 and 11-0060 arrived on 14/12/2018. These three replaced 11-0057, 11-0058 and 11-0061 which departed on 09/12/2018.
Thanks Bob

Good afternoon all. Ive recently relocated to the Norfolk/Suffolk area and I am attempting get up to speed on the local airfields and units.

The last info I can find on the current based KC-135 airplanes with the 100th ARW was a post by Glencoe back in 2016 as reproduced below

58-0069 Boeing KC-135T
58-0118 Boeing KC-135R
59-1464 Boeing KC-135T
59-1471 Boeing KC-135T
59-1492 Boeing KC-135R
59-1513 Boeing KC-135T
61-0267 Boeing KC-135R
61-0299 Boeing KC-135T
61-0321 Boeing KC-135R
62-3565 Boeing KC-135R
63-7999 Boeing KC-135R "Boss Bird"
63-8021 Boeing KC-135R
63-8027 Boeing KC-135R
63-8871 Boeing KC-135R
63-8884 Boeing KC-135R "Woolf Pack"

I paid a couple of visits to Mildenhall in the last week and noted the following which are either updates to this list, or confirmation of airplanes still based as per the previous list above. These are notes/photos taken from Johns Field and I didn't do a fence tour for anything that didn't fly on either occasion.

18.4.19

60-0324 still based 100th ARW markings

23.4.19

57-1440 addition
57-1474 addition with Clover Leaf nose art and the name "MISS IRISH"
62-3551 addition

57-2605 still based with Eagle badge nose art and the name "BIGGASBIRD"
58-0100 still based with "D" badge nose art and the name "HUNDRED PROOF"

all the above KC-135Rs with 100th ARW marking and operating with QUID callsigns

If anyone can post a more comprehensive list of the current situation I (and possibly others of course) would be grateful for some up to date info.

0063 = The Dutchess

Cheers for that, got the Dutchess patch from the crew at Marham last week.
