US military aircraft carries out unknown flight to Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BENGHAZI – A military aircraft of the United States Armed Forces (USAF) departed from Ramstein airbase in Germany and headed for Libya on Monday evening, Itamilradar reports.

Itamilradar, a website specializes in monitoring aircraft movements over Italy and the Mediterranean, said the aircraft, a Boeing C-17A (07-7183) left the German airbase at 20:30 CEST.

“The aircraft follow one of usual routes used for flight to Libya and the signal was lost (ADS-B transponder switched off?) south of Malta when the aircraft was flying eastbound,” the website said.

The signal was lost at 23:00 CEST and  was again received at 03:50 CEST south of Sardinia when the aircraft was returning to Germany, said Itamilradar.

The aircraft landed in Ramstein around 05:50 CEST.

“We don’t have the full track but we can suppose that the aircraft landed somewhere in eastern Libya (Benghazi?),” Itamilradar concluded.
