The RAF A330MRTT, ZZ337, "ASCOT9201", departed today at 10:30. She was joined by the four Tornados "RETRO21", over Robben Island & from there the formation departed.

Was hoping they would come down the ILS after forming up & then fly a standard departure plate ... but sadly not .. so no photos :(

For those wondering why a RAF tanker: NATO operates a pool of tankers, from the RAF, USAF, France, Netherlands, etc. Thus, whenever a partner nation requires a tanker, it is requested from and drawn from the pool of tankers.

We haven't heard or seen it again since it arrived on Saturday ... but it could have sneaked out. Although FR24 still has it on the ground at FACT :-k

Not the best quality - motion pictures taken of sunset from the N2 next to the airport yesterday evening.
Pity nothing took off as I went past the ILS :cry:
