It was a very busy weekend at Eifel Air base. As we continue to complete building the base we are also dealing with continued US troop build ups in the middle east as well as a major heat wave here in Europe.
First an over view of the entire base as you can see a lot more buildings and equipment have been added but still very much a work in process.
#1 \for take off on Runway 7 we have a KC-135 making the short hop back to RAF Mildenhall in England as part of the US tanker task force.
behing the KC-135 on the EOR pad we have 2 F-16s heading back to there base at Spangdalham and a single CF-18 heading down to CFB Lahr.
On the transit ramp a pair of Luftwaffe F-4s from JG71 at Wittmund get refueled.
Over on the cargo ramp a C-130H just arrived from the Minnesota ANG base at KMSP is downloading pallets of water to a halverson 60k loader to be shipped to France, next up is a second C-130 H the will be flying down to Deccimomannu this evening taking support personal for a F-15 deployment. and finally a RAF C-130K that will be heading back to the UK in the morning.
At the MAC terminal an North American 767-300 has just arrived from Baltimore as a Patriot flight these chartered aircraft fly service members and thee family's that will be stationed at Air Force and Army installations though out Europe.
