Europe brief: AF searching for panel that fell from KC-135
RAF MILDENHALL, England — The Air Force is looking for a small metal panel that fell off a KC-135 during a routine flight Wednesday.
Air Force officials said the 1-foot-by-3-foot panel is not dangerous and losing it did not hinder the aircraft’s performance.
The panel likely landed south of the flight line at Mildenhall. The 100th Air Refueling Wing is asking members of the public to call the base at 01638542654 or British authorities if they find the missing piece of metal.
