This afternoon we’ve tracked a Royal Air Force Lockheed C-130J (reg. ZZH868, f/n RRR5740) operating a flight from RAF Brize Norton to Misrata, Libya.
The aircraft has departed from RAF Brize Norton at 11:38 CEST and it has landed in Misrata, Libya, around 15:30 CEST.
Although rare, these types of flights are tracked with some periodicity. On Misrata we have seen both C-130s and C-17As operated by the RAF.
The nature of these flights remains unknown.
