Interesting merry go round with the Typhoon and A330 just now - not sure what the US Cessna is there for?

I've been looking them up since after they left Brize. I wonder why all this go-around in circles and then the Tiffie.

Why all this? There's been some odd stuff since after old Joe left Mildenhall last night.

I don't think N787BK is a Cessna 208. It has a 419kt ground speed at the moment at 26000ft. N787BK isn't on the N-register either. It'll be the other Typhoon. Why it's showing as N787BK I don't know.

I was thinking the same, definitely not a Cessna. Such a sortie must cost the head and the eyes. I don't think they would be visible if it was for security reasons. They are really burning huge amounts of fuel. I wonder how long a Tiffie can stay up in the air without air to air refueling.

The A330 will refuel the Typhoons. If it is a Cessna, it's a very fast one!

Maybe being visible is part of the deterrent effect against the risk of any light aircraft attack!

I did not think of a refueling 330 when they left Brize. With all the merry go rounds it has to be a refueling plane. The Cessna is indeed fast!
ADS-B got it all wrong, including the A330 paint picture!

The Cessna was originally reporting under Chaos11 call sign.

It was doing about 520kts at the time over Worcestershire, heading south.

The A330 is now on the ground at RAF Brize Norton. Let's see what goes tomorrow. Is President Biden staying at the Resort? Are there any new arrivals for tomorrow's summit?

I heard from a friend in Japan that the government machine that was going to be used to ferry PM Suga to G7 had a mechanical incident before the trip. Not sure what else happened after that. There is a second plane they can use but they generally fly by two.

The allocated hex code for N787BK is [AAAAAA] so presumably the Typhoon driver in "Chaos 11" had a sticky-key (or was just plain lazy) when entering today's tactical code into the box.

Translated.
Dedicated machine for malfunctions also goes to the UK Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato
Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said at a press conference on the 11th that Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga was planning to board a government aircraft for the UK where the G7 summit will be held. We're done and we're leaving for the UK today. " There are two dedicated aircraft in operation, and it is "currently undecided" which aircraft the prime minister will board when he returns to Japan.

South Korea are also going to G7.
snips

As South Korean President Moon Jae-in
prepared to depart on Friday for the G7 summit in the UK, talk of countering China threatened to overshadow Seoul’s efforts to be regarded as a major player on issues such as climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic.
South Korea is one of several guest nations invited to the G7 meeting as the rich democracies try to show the world they can still act in concert to tackle major crises by donating hundreds of millions of Covid-19 vaccines
to poor countries and pledging to slow climate change.
