Usaf Heavies Over London, Ontario

Sun Jun 24, 2007 7:51 am

Has anyone seen the KC-135 and the C-17 flying over YXU and London, Ontario? Anyone know the reason they're in town?

I know they used to have a big airshow in London about this time of year, I used to attend during the late '80s. My guess would be the USAF is on display, assuming that they still have an airshow at YXU.

Could the Canadian Air Force be doing some training/familiarlization? It may be premature for that so far ahead of delivery.

Been no airshows for several years now, the money dried up (real shame). Training: I had thought of that re: the C-17, but the KC-135 had me stumped. I was wondering if perhaps the USAF was taking delivery some Stryker tanks from General Dynamics here in London and shipping them directly overseas....?

There was a air show in St. Thomas this weekend. Some of the aircraft were staging out of London due to the runway length at St. Thomas.
