This KC-135 is part of the
452nd Air Mobility Wing based at March Air Reserve base. Based on the
Boeing 707 airliner, the Air Force began using the tanker version in
about 1957. The last one was delivered from the factory to the Air
Force in 1965! There are a number of modifications that have been done
over the years to the fleet with more coming to keep them flying as an
important part of the Air Force mission.
