All fighters have them. Any time they have brake or hydraulic issues they take the cable to ensure they stay on the runway and can stop.

So is the cable in place all the time at certain air fields or is it something that's deploy when an aircraft has an emergency

Both. Some fields have them across both ends of the runway and left in place, and others have a team ready to install a mobile cable system as needed.

Apparently half the cell landed Code 3, including the one that took the barrier.

Eight more Eagles with tankers airborne. Two Eagles will drop off at the first AR point if the others all take on fuel with no issues.

Three to four B-52s inbound. Two might head to the Baltic before heading in, and one might be an airborne spare.

Unconfirmed word that as many as 8 may show up.

Yeah. Rumor was two were going straight in, two were flying a mission then going in. Possibly three or four more tomorrow.

It became MPA ISTAR, but I think it just quietly went away.

You'll probably see the B-52s out of Fairford join in, now that they're in place and ready to start flying.

I’ve seen the 52’s close up over the years..even got shown around one during gulf war part 2 when I was temporarily based at Fairford...beast of a thing!! There’s quite a lot of interesting things floating about on ADSB and if you look at their “tracks” you can figure out what their role is...!!! a reply to: Zaphod58

Triton if the altitude is correct. Most likely working with the exercise guys.
