I see KC-10 87-0118 AE0130 plotting fully on screen this morning, a first for me. Looking through my records I also see that KC-10 85-0027 AE021F was also plotting fully on 29/12/14.

AFAIK, no USAF C-17 are full ADS-B yet, but 3 x KC-10A are so far, these have all been through an upgrade (cockpit?) this will be fleet wide. 87-0118, 87-0124 and 85-0027 are the one's.

this explains it, and says the KC-135 fleet is to be so treated as well. I suspect the C-5M + C-17A fleet can just be switched on
