@J_NAV… MaxSez: Thank you for taking the time to pick and choose the USAF KC-10/ 135 Refueler Sqd unique Call Signs from that long list provided in the linked Universal all mil craft listing. One can find each Sqd AOA/Home Station by referring to the link should you choose to be regionally correct. “OMEGA”, CivAir Contracts Tanker Support WW. Our Tanked is identified by hull marking as a Travis AFB Bird from the 60/349 AMW which is not listed. Regards All

The closest I can find to 60/349 AMW Travis AFB was “60AMW” Travis AFB, in which the callsign was “BORA.”
