We’ve tracked a interesting flight of a French Air Force Boeing C-135FR (reg. 735 callsign FAF4012): the aircraft left Istres AB, southern France, at 09:08 CET.
The tanker follow the usual route to the central Mediterranean Sea but when it was between Sardinia and Tunisia we’ve lost the signal (around 11). After 3hours and half (at 14:34) the signal is appeared again but this time the aircraft was flying northbound.
The route was the usual route followed by French tankers which made mission off Tripoli and also the time difference it would coincide with a mission off Tripoli but without an evident trace we cannot be sure of that.
