Mrtt Over EMA

Mon Sep 03, 2012 7:38 pm

I spotted what looked like either a B767 or A330 MRTT style aircraft over EMA at around 1700GMT today. To be honest, it didn't appear long enough for it to be the RAF A330 variant.
Anyone any further info to share?
Sorry, I didn't have my camera to hand

Isn't the RAF still testing the A-330MRTT? Then again it could also be an Italian KC-767A. I assume what you saw had the wingtip WARPs. If they were close to the wingtips, it was a KC-767, if they were about mid-wing, then it was a Voyager KC2 (I don't think any KC3s are flying yet). The Italian KC-767A also has a boom, but I don't know if you could make out the Boom Ruddervators at the tail.
