After about 18 hours of flight time and an overnight stay in RAF Lakenheath, England, flight Reach 525, a KC-135 originating from Fairchild Air Force Base, arrived at the Transit Center at Manas, Kyrgyzstan, around 8 am PST. The 28 Air Force personnel on the flight will deploy out of Manas for an average of three to four months.
