A KC-10A Extender arrives into RAF Mildenhall under the call sign Reach 113H.
After landing the crew had to wait on the runway for a few minutes while the still smoking hot brakes cooled. You can still see the brakes smoking at 2:12 as the jet turns in to taxiway delta.
McDonnell Douglas KC-10A Extender (REACH 807) and Boeing KC-135 (REACH 557) landing into RAF Mildenhall in the summer 2016.
This KC-10 was not down as attending RIAT 2016 and I can only assume it was ferrying freight in for the show as it departed on Wednesday 6th July before the show kicked off.
In any case, it’s always good to catch a KC-10, which will likely become an increasingly rare sight as the KC-46 Pegasus comes on stream in the coming months and years.
