US Air Force refuelling jet disappears off radar over English Channel

Recommended Posts

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.


No comment from the US Air Force yet.

refueling jets are more important than the bombers and fighters themselves
