Ian,
while my wife was shopping @ Kaufland, i was waiting outsite to watch the 'meanwhile' action @ Ramstein :D
the C-17 you saw departing was 97-0045 437AW.
i noticed a C-130 arriving from opposite direction as the other traffic, it was the French C-130H 5227/61-PL
i also saw later on the platform a C-40, C-26 and a couple of C-21's, UH-60's flying around.

greetings,
marco
Hejdå,
Marco

Eric/Marco many thanks for the info.

You are right the C-17 was 30602 not 30603. A typo in my online report!

Yes 100% sure about C-17 01. This was already in when we arrived about 12.30 and hadn't moved by the time we left at 19.00. As you look at the base from the hill it was on the far left.

I assume the C40 was the based one. It was all white and sitting in itsusual place.

Rgds,

Hi Marco,

07 landed mid/late afternoon and that was it until four went out between 6 and 7. We'd already read them off by then so didn't really pay attention to the serials. Sorry!!

Rgds Ian
