How rare is it for Souda Bay to have 9 US Navy F18s? (if they indeed landed here)

Make the KC-135's three, since QUID285 (59-1511) landed about one and a half hour after the first two.
The F-18's are not at Souda anyway, but even if they were, that wouldn't be something unusual. When USN/USMC Squadrons are deployed, there might be up to 12 fighters for a couple of days at Souda.
The SJ birds seem to be 88-1671 and 89-0501.

Seen today in person? The mil reg has only appeared on its FPL for the first time today. I don't believe it's flown since it arrived with N reg.

That is indeed a very excellent point - well spotted sir. I tend to agree with this theory and think that they filed the DOF/ in the REG/ field by accident. If the reg changes to 180414 tomorrow then we'll know for sure! :lol: :lol: :lol:
