Post by Flyboy »

Monday 19/10/2020, 11:30 utc I see 7 tankers going to or coming from the Northsea.

madrs 27 zz333
madrs 20 zz336

Dutch area

Nato 06 LX-N90445 is orbiting in a racetrack of the Danish coast while it normally circle in the middle of the Northsea.

Anyone a clue about an exercise? Or am I mistaken and this is normal operations...

Ah, that makes sense! Last week (14oct), during a similar exercise with Detox, Warp, Weasel etc refuelling, I caught 'Mighty 65 flight rtb to the States' talking to bandbox. I was wondering why the US bomber task force was working with bandbox.

Thanks for clearing that up :D
