RAF Mildenhall


These pics were taken yesterday at RAF [USAF] Mildenhall, some had different propellor configuration and the ones doing 'Rollers' [Touch & Go's/ Circuits & Bumps] were Special Forces aircraft, some of you guys might know about these but remember these are USAF kites This photograph is [ so I was informed yesterday by a guy with a 'scanner' a C130 performing a Roller at Mildenhall but was from Ramstein AFB in Germany, note the nose configuration, I will upload some close up shots of some of the sensitive gear later

A KC135 after doing a 'Roller' at Mildenhall yesterday, these aircraft are flying fuel tankers from the 100th Air Refuelling Wing at Mildenhall. My understanding is that they are on station on the Western Approaches to Britain off the Cornish Coast and over the North Sea, the USAF operate a Boom Refuelling system, I believe the RAF use a drogue/basket system, can anyone confirm this?
