Considering I was watching something from Spain that was reporting over 3 million feet earlier, I wouldn't put that much stock in all the data that is put across. It might be a UAV, but the only ones I've seen come across are Global Hawks, and earlier today a SkyGuardian. But the data is sometimes flaky.

One of the Omega 707s is over Henderson heading up towards the NTTR tonight. First time I've caught them up there.

There's currently an Omega 707 showing at 360 knots, on the ground. Heh.

Ive got an Omega Tanker and ad a KC-10 in the same vicinity. Would they tank the KC-10?

They can't. The 707s only have drogues. They're one of the Blue Air tankers. Looks like Fallon has at least a few F-18s at Nellis, as well as MV-22s, and some other probe and drogue stuff. None of the Omega tankers have a boom, they do mostly Navy work so they're all probe and drogue.

There's another KC-10 and a -135 to the west acting as Red Air tankers.

They're all from the same unit. Units tend to use the same callsign. In this case he was involved in the JFEX. Both he and the 707 in that picture were Blue Air tankers.

It might be, but crews are known to swap, as well as the aircraft they fly.

i was going to say something snarky about their 'unmanned' patch they got, you know seeing as everyone is equal and all that.

but i will err on the side of caution this morning

It is a common callsign at Travis, but I don't know if it is unique to Travis.

The only ones that I've ever seen using it are the Travis KC-10s.

Caught a KC-10 flying as Sierra99 early this morning. He's still up over NTTR.

Just caught N879AD heading west, paralleling I-10 near Desert Center. Came out of either Tucson International, or DM. Now that's an interesting airframe. It's listed as an NC-9D belonging to the Navy. He went in to China Lake.

Canadian A310, UK Sentinel, and Italian KC-767 all airborne over Jordan and Israel. Looks like the Sentinel is heading towards Crete, the others towards Italy.

Russian Tu-214PU-SBUS (their E-4B) is airborne over Russia.
