Best movement of the past few years (for me at least) this evening when 168ARS KC135R 63-8015 arrived as Arctic 23. Coded AK with "Grayling" in the fin stripe and a polar bear on the tail.

Do you have a list of the TX Vipers that are still present? Have they swapped out any from when they first arrived?

Tally.

86-0222 arrived back at NAS Fort Worth on June 4th. So I wonder if they are or have already rotated some airframes in and out.

The tanker is flying some local missions as Okie 81 and arrived from Tinker so may be a recent transfer or loaner to the unit there
