C-17 from Andrews, be interesting to see what's unloaded.

Given that it came from Andrews, surely more likely to be linked to the upcoming Presidential visit...

My thoughts exactly.

At a guess I'd expect a couple more C-17s or maybe a C-5.

To bring what Chris? The choppers and limos are already over, I don't pretend to know what comes in on pallets, but I can't see the need for that many more large airlifters. Not having a dig just interested in what you think some more C-17s and a C-5 would bring.

I didn't know they were over?

I just think from a security point of view, that Fairford is one of the easier bases to secure.

If the helos are already here I apologise.

SBS suggests it departed Edwards yesterday morning and stopped off at Andrews.
