That is a fantastic group of photos! Thanks!! Good luck with the A380 too, you've probably already tried anticipating them using plane finder, but that's how I saw my first one. Or is it a case of their routing not usually being over your location too?

Heads up folks! --AR-Primary 341.750
I know it's late/early ..just got home from work. Amazed that a scheduled refuel is on schedule this morning.
ETHYL95 and REACH323 rendezvous at 3:47z. Asking for 50k of gas. No idea what plane type the REACH is.

Hi! I'm guessing a C-17 judging by the emails I received at that time.

So of course I missed the actual refueling...but there had to be 15 minutes of chatter recorded from the tankers because the Bombers called in a 20 min delay. As a result, the Ethyls may have to get some gas for themselves. (Audioboo / Ethyl03/04 discuss fuel concerns of their own (Part 1) )
RAMAs landed at Dyess at 01:02Z despite some concerns about the weather. ( Audioboo / RAMA61 requesting PP to Phoenix Ops re: WX/Alternate Landing ) Tower welcomed them home (via LiveATC). Some day I'll see a bomber refuel...some day..

Indeed...my recordings started at 9:07Z . Hearing RETRO21 refueling with BLUE72. Using 391.000 Coronet Bravo Primary and 388.400 Coronet Bravo Secondary. Some of the recording can be heard here: Audioboo / RETRO21 / BLUE 72 on AR20

I guess I got that a little mixed up.... not RETRO72..... too early in the morning I guess. So I take it that RETRO21 is an F-15, and what unit is the tanker from?

Hi Ian I just got AE12A5 on the box, which indicates as an AC-130U, it was at 18000 feet so it may be headed to yhz. I think you mentioned plain C-130s listing incorrectly as Spectres before, right? Or is this potentially the real deal?
