Although not based at Mildenhall, KC-10s are regular visitors, with a weekly run that goes between the US, Mildenhall and Ramstein in Germany. As they are the favoured type when compared to KC-135's to accompany deployments of fast jets across the Atlantic, it's not uncommon to have several in here at once. Here 'Reach 558' is operating the regular run. Behind the KC-10 can be seen the main gate and vehicle check where a week ago a incident involved somebody ramming there way onto the base, getting through security and finally being stopped on the CV-22 ramp after being fired upon.
