When I was working around them they were leased by a British Company using Russian Crews.  The plot thickens.

AN124s were in and out of Charleston a time or two a week a handful of years back carrying our MRAPS to our troops.

White tanker could have been Omega. They are a private company that tanks Navy fighters all the time.

You really only have 4 choices of fighters - Vipers, Hornets, Eagles and Raptors....no idea which they were?

First cargo plane was white, it would say with 90% certainty it was Raptors.

The 2nd two cargo planes were grey, couldn't make out the fighters with the sun.

Interesting. Im not 100% sure, but I dont think Omega can tank AF jets. Someone can correct me if Im wrong.

They generally do that on C-17s. Not 747s. Which would be hard anyway given that most 747s don't have cargo ramps.
Link Posted: 8/30/2015 4:22:50 PM EDT
I guess it could have been an IL-76 tanking some international jets heading to Nellis for something. Maybe tanking Indian Flankers or French Rafales.

Off the info so far, Id lean more toward that as all US tankers are dark AF gray. At least that I know of....

Unless it's a F model, or a M model, or a ERF model.....or any of the 9 different 747 based freighters.
Folding metal ramps are less than $10000 a set and can be erected by hand. I hand a set to load limos on a step deck years ago.

My parents place always has planes flying overhead.  Usually at least 8 can be counted at all times.

I did see 2 big passenger jets in line once.  Close enough that the only thing I could think was Air Force 1 and 2.

Probably 7-8 years ago, I saw these bad boys booking it over their place.

Because they couldn't just land on the GIANT Air Force base located right next to Anchorage. Congress needs to role back the unlimited budget devoted to POTUS protection. And they need to quit shutting down every road that he rides on, we don't have kings in this country, do we?

One of the most awesome things I ever saw as a young boy was at my grandma's farm in eastern WA. Her place was out in the rolling wheat hills at the end of a private road. Flyovers from Fairchild AFB were common, along with unexpected sonic booms. Most of that was at the tail end of the cold war right before USSR broke up.

One day I was at the edge of the property playing in the dirt, when I heard a hissing noise and looked up. About a mile down the road a pair of jets (don't remember what, probably F15/F16) just popped over one of the hills, and they both came screaming right at me. They passed over low enough that I could see just about every marking and mechanism on the bottom of the jets, then just after they passed over the sound practically knocked me over. I won't ever forget that sound... The ccccccccchhhhhhHHH-BHHHHHHMMMMMM.  It probably took a long time to wipe the grin off my face.

The only all white DV aircraft are Guard C-40/737's w/ 2 engines. And the only other *mostly* white 747 is the E-4, which doesn't haul cargo.  No way that was a DV bird- coming from a guy who's spent the majority of his career in the DV airlift community, and flown into the springs countless times... Theres no fighter escort there, ever.  

Actually, come to think of it, I've only seen fighters around one time and it was letting the Canadians 'intercept' us while we took the boss to their fighter base.
