This one should be dragging UAE F16's from Nellis via Moron. Maybe one went tech and the cell diverted?

Serials are correct as personally read on arrival.

79-0008 was (IIRC) at Bitburg AB from 1979 with the 525th TFS as BT bl (remember them)?, for those spotting in the late 70s and early 80s.

RETRO41/44 confirmed airborne with KC-10A 87-0101 RCH086 out of EGUN.

RCH096 also airborne by 10:10z, so RETRO51/54 are likely to be as well.

Destination should be LLEK.
