KC-135 At EDDH/Hamburg

Tue May 31, 2011 8:08 am

Hallo All,

on Sunday, 29th May 2011, at around 15:00 (not exact time!) I observed a Boeing KC-135 approaching EDDH for a landing on RW 23.

Has anybody heard anything about this?

I was not able to discern any ID or flag. So no more clues.

In my experience, this must have ben a very rare visit.


Stay belted as long as you can!

Most likely it was a USAF KC-135.

But it could also be a French or Turkish KC-135, or an Israeli KC-707, which also has a KC-135 Boom attached.
