RATT55 (13-8969/A10635) was up this morning in a track in the eastern part of R-2508. At the same time a tanker TAHOE88 was in the area (63-8017/AE07C1).

The tanker, operating out of Beale AFB, had flown similar mission support on 6/11 and 6/12. It comes back as registered to the 328th ARS of the NY ARC. It is interesting to note that the tanker is operating out of Beale AFB, a base heavily involved with UAV operations. The RQ-180 is rumored to be controlled from there.

The track of RATT55 (at a fairly low altitude) would be consistent with a mission aircraft either in the NTTR or in R-2508.

Unfortunately I am not in Rachel to monitor at the moment but the tanker, and of course RATT55, is one to keep an eye on.

Thanks to West Coast Afterburner for the heads up.
