RAF Fairford was reactivated as a USAF tanker base in September 1978 when seven KC-135s arrived for Exercise Autumn Forge. The base (along with some of the aircraft) was opened to the public during that September and attracted a lot of interest, as seen here. The 11th Strategic Group was reactivated in November, and the 7020th Air Base Group, part of 3rd Air Force, was established as the host unit in the following February. (And six years later I would work there myself in the base clinic...)
