Yesterday evening we’ve tracked an USAF Boeing C-17A (reg. callsign RCH147) departed at 21:55 CEST from Ramstein AB and “disappeared” from all tracking site at 00:16 CEST flying south of Lampedusa southbound at FL410.
We’ve not tracked a return flight (yet).
Note that in this area, in the same moments operated a USNavy Lockheed EP-3E (160764) departed from Souda Bay AB. The presence of this aircraft is not unusual in this area but the presence of this aircraft at this time (around 01:00 CEST it was still in the area) is very unusual. We don’t know if these flights are connected.
