I'd say you have three weeks to see all three, but that's a best guesstimate.

The B-2s have been busy so far. All three have been flying every day. One spent five hours on the ground in Keflavik, the first time a B-2 has been to Iceland. Today two were seen flying with two Marham F-35s, and a Hawk, as well as a KC-135 out of the Hall.

Looks like someone is going to be heading that way from Mountain Home. Not sure yet if they're going to press on to the AOR, or stick around in the UK. A 747 with equipment on board is inbound to Lakenheath.

A few pics taken by a USAF exchange from the back seat of that Hawk.

There's a rumor going around that the B-52 that IFEd into Mildenhall will be scrapped in place.

Too much was lost to make it repairable ?

Word from other sources is that they're repairing it, but if it was going to be scrapped then yeah, the damage would have been more extensive than was cost effective to repair.

There are now B-52s at Fairford as well. They're participating in Ample Strike 19, Cobra Warrior, and NATO Days.

I have seen pics of the drouge chute being packed earlier this week on the BUFF at Mildenhall and the word on the local spotters sites is that it will leave tomorrow at midday , unsure of if it's for a test flight or going back home

Probably both. They'll FCF it, and if all looks good meet up with a couple tankers and fuel to head home. As long as it's been sitting though they might just FCF it and RTB back to the base for a quick inspection.

No go. Not sure if it was maintenance related or what, but she has not flown yet.

Probably a tanker issue. That'll kill a mission faster than just about anything.
