The American airbase RAF Mildenhall in the United Kingdom is home to the tankers of the 100th Air Refuelling Squadron. The 100 ARS currently flies the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker. While visiting Mildenhall several tankers were present at their parking spot along the fence. These aircraft could be easily captured on photo. At the end of the afternoon there was also a RC-135 which was started up. This aircraft would leave soon for a mission above the sea. RAF Mildenhall is one of the few American airfields outside the United States where the RC-135 is stationed regularly during a detachment. It is therefore very extraordinary to capture this aircraft on photo in Europe.
