    Boeing E-6B mercury

    The other night I saw U.S navy Boeing E-6B mercury circling around Scotland at 21,745 feet.

    Does anyone know what it was doing?

    I wonder if that was the same one., that I was surprized to see on my radar.

    with a callsign of "GOTFMS" owners US Navy.

    Maybe doing some Dambuster practice..!??????????
