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. This touchdown is far better than the last KC-10 I saw land here back in September which bounced down the runway in a cloud of tire smoke.
