The KC135 carries up to 30,000 gallons of aviation fuel.

Proposals to merge two West Suffolk councils which cover Bury St Edmunds and Mildenhall are being discussed today.
The Leaders of St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Forest Heath District Council say joining together would give them more financial stability.
The councils already share some resources, and have saved £4 four million annually.
The merger could see just one leader and one cabinet running services across the districts, which also cover Haverhill and Newmarket.
We already work closely but this could enable us to be both stronger together and more fleet of foot, to grasp commercial opportunities to further benefit our communities, deliver housing and talk to big business and Government.

At the same time they want us to fight their corner nationally to make sure we get the best deal from Government.
Reports suggest that the plans to close the Suffolk RAF base are under review.Read the full story ›
