I guess for overseas long distance trips they do have drop tanks.. I always wondered if they did.
Those internal tanks won't get them very far course not stealthy with tanks but they
are just transiting..

Nice pic!

Thanks man..Its not bad, but I need to remember to put my lens hood on, and take pictures slower, my quality is kinda the *****s lol. Conditions were just about perfect today.

Makes sense they would have some sort of drop tanks for long transits, they would need to refuel a lot without them.

Nice pictures Ian. Thanks for posting them. These were indeed Holloman F-22s which dropped into Pease for the night.

also had this C-17 come in about an hour later. May be related:

1818z REACH 476 - 20 minutes out, A-1, six pallets, 2 pieces of rolling stock, 2 pax, request B-5 stand, crew trans for 12, parking and lav service.


FLIGHT TWO:

The BLUE 71 I heard come into Pease earlier was part of the second Coronet flight of two F-16s inbound from Moron.

1953z 321.000 BLUE 71 wkg Pack Control
2002z 134.950 BLUE 71 wkg Boston Center (ZBW) switching controllers
2002z 128.200 BLUE 71 chk in with ZBW, passing 32.4 for 240. Down to 11,000
2014z 119.750 BLUE 71 chk in with Portland App/Dep in the descent to Pease.
2015z 125.050 BLUE 71 chk in with Boston Tracon passing 14 for 11 with information ECHO and visual to runway 34.
2031z 128.400 BLUE 71 chk in with Pease Tower, inbound gear down runway 34.

then, shortly after hearing this...

1645z 133.450 BLUE 68 wkg Boston Center (ZBW) Please call 757-764-XXXX (CP at Langley AFB) and let them know one of the F-16s MAZDA 18 or 19 will be declaring an emergency. He will land ok but cannot exit the runway.
1648z 294.800 BLUE 68 and MAZDA 18, 19 on boom primary passing along the emergency information.
1651z 133.450 BLUE 68 wkg ZBW, requests fighters get direct Langley if possible.

1652z 133.450 BLUE 68 wkg ZBW, getting his routing back to McGuire direct MANTA. Also asks if Langley got the message.
1655z 133.450 MAZDA 18 flight switching to next controller. I think he said 125.925


AE0222 85-0030 BLUE68 2013-01-27 20:48:44 KC-10A United States USAF | 305AMW [KWRI]

Thanks Ed, and thanks for the recap of everything, I wonder what route those F-16s took. I did see a KC10 pop up on the box in that time frame, but I was in the garage, so I didn't notice the notification till it was already gone.

Nice audio..Yeah those guys get rammy after being strapped in those seats for
hours on boring trans-Atlantic flights.Tanking breaks it up some.
I remember the F-16 CAP's near New York shortly after 9/11 and those guys
played board game Battleship A/A while flying..Funny to hear B-4! D-1! "You got my cruiser"
I wish I kept those recordings..
One F-16 pilot says after 6 hour CAP they have to almost pry him out of his seat.

Ian, I think they took a Southern route across from Spain. The KC-10 you logged was BLUE 71 and he was part of the F-16 flight and was logged on St. Johns and yours. The other tanker, BLUE 68 was never logged Canada after he left Spain. His first North American hit was in Billerica, MA as he got closer to the US somewhere off Nantucket, MA. Their route was more South than the F-22s even thought they both left from roughly the same area.

This made me laugh. Aside from being in combat, that must be one of the most fun jobs ever...

Thanks for this thread and all the updates, interesting stuff!

ROFL!! I wish I could have heard that Cool pic of the drop tanks, I totally hate(not really) the guy who took it, cause he has hundreds of Military Aircraft pics from Lajes on that site...and so close in its ridiculous lol.

Ahh, ok, thanks for piecing it together Ed, I was wondering. I need to get hooked up on the ADS-B site.. I never did get a registration email or anything further when I tried last time.
