Direct flight USA – Benghazi

Yesterday an USAF Boeing C-17A (callsign RCH223, reg. 09-9205) made an unusual flight from the USA (Andrews AFB) to Benghazi, Libya.

Different twitter accounts reported, yesterday afternoon an aerial refueling between an USAF KC-135R and a C-17A over the UK.

The Globemaster continued its flight and disappeared from all tracking site around 21:41 CEST over southern Tyrrhenian sea when it flew southbound.

After less than two hours the Globemaster is appeared again but this time in the opposite direction. The aircraft was, this time, in flight from Libya to Germany.

We don’t know the nature of the mission but in the past we’ve already tracked similar flights with final destination an airbase in Germany. It’s the first time that we tracked a direct flight from the USA to Benghazi.

The aircraft was carrying urgent supplies?
