Ok all military folks out there, you know what I am talking about. The acft that did strange things on the ground that no logical answer could be found. I want to here your stories.
For all the mx troops in Mildenhall who parked planes on certain hardstands especially the one across from hanger 711.. I took a KC-135A ser# 62-3555 from K.I. Sawyer to EGUN on numerous occasions and found that I could not get specialists to work on the jet especially at night, they always said my jet was haunted or possessed, if there was a ghost it never bothered me except on 2 occasions that I could not explain.
Every Crew Chief sets up his seats and tie downs in his own way on a tanker, before I closed up my jet at night I cleaned up and put all my troop seats in the stowed position and tie down my toolbox. 6 hours later I came out all my troopseats were down with lapbelts crossed and my toolbox in a different station and nobody was on the jet after I left.
At least I know in the 135 community there some stories out there and would like read them, I heard about a Tanker that belongs to the reserve wing at ADW that likes to pop all its circuit breakers inflight for no apparent reason.


I would help you but it is not in the contract

Odd that you mention Mildenhall...

Were the specialists you mention MoD Civilians? How about T.A. or POL?
Crew door padlocked or security taped?

I went TDY to MoldyHole a number of times. I discovered early on that the MoD civilians never rose above the shift supervisor level and as such found "unusual" means of influencing us Americans higher in the rank structure. For example: If I tried to introduce an automated procedure, changing the way the MoD Civs had been doing things since Christ was a babe, I might find my computer power cord "missing".

The Brits also liked things "just so". If I didn't leave my desk "just so" I would return in the morning to find things "rearranged", not missing just moved.

Once I caught on to the game and relaxed the odd things stopped happening.

To keep this post on topic: I never saw a haunted aircraft, but there were a few that I thought were "charmed" due to their schedule reliability and inability to screw up my day: VC-137 974, C-141B 66-0136, L-100 N15ST, and L-188s N290F & N289F. N15ST was ALWAYS ontime until the day it rolled over and died at SKF... so it wasn't charmed for everybody... RIP guys...

regards

No MOD civilians never touched the tankers, they stayed on the AMC side.
