  • US Air Force KC-135R Disappears From Radar Over English Channel

    A US Air Force refuelling aircraft disappeared off the radar over the English Channel last night.

    The Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker left Amiens in northern France at 0.05am local time (11.05pm BST) and was last reported on a flight tracking website between Dover and Calais 15 minutes later.

    It is not yet known why the plane - flying under the code QID72 and based at Mildenhall in Suffolk - fell off the radar at 0.20am. The US Air Force was unavailable for comment.

    There's no airport in Amiens where a KC-135 could have taken off... great journalist work again....

    Plane landed safely at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk

      Looks like they picked up the tracking near Amiens and some numb nuts reporter made an incorrect assumption.
      If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !
