I finally caught one of the RAF RC-135s. Rather luck as he was just feet away from cloud when he landed on runway 11 yesterday afternoon. The fire wagons were waiting as he'd reported smoke in the cabin. Note the 100th anniversary markings for 51 Sqn on the tail. 51 Sqn have always carried sqn insignia despite their rather secretive and sensitive role.
