Hey all!

If I am in the wrong section - I apologise!

I was alerted today by a buddy of mine that he saw an AWACs plane (he described it as a plane with a radar dish on but didn't know the aircraft type!) taking off from runway 09 at EMA today or yesterday!

Can anyone tell me why it was at a civilian airport. Must have been a fuel stop or something but surely a uS air base in the UK would have handled this!

Cheers

Maybe a minor in-flight emergency?

EMA is not very far from RAF Waddington, where the RAF's Sentries are based.
