C-17 leaving Ramstein

Post by Withnail »

Just saw a C-17 flying west over the area near Gerolstein. Looked like it was on its way from Ramstein. Anyone for the serial?

Of course not 100% sure, but based on SBS data / PP I would say this was RCH360 C-17A 99-0062 437 AW. Now flying WB over the UK.

Cheers,
Marco

Yesterday @ 1800 the only C-17 parked at Ramsteon was 00-0216, and this was still present this morning amongst the others that came in overnight.
So, unless it came in late last night and did a relatively quick turn-arround (wich is not impossible!) your C-17 was'nt coming from Ramstein....

My log will follow shortly!

Regards,

Joost

Thank you. And today, thursday august 13th I saw two aircraft in the morning and one in the afternoon, also near Gerolstein. Around 10.00 hours I saw a C-17A which looked like it climbed out of Ramstein. At a quarter to eleven I saw what looked like a C-12 flying north or northwest. At a quarter to two I saw another C-17A. It seemed to be leaving Ramstein. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.
