KC-135 Wing-Body Fairings

I know the wing body farings on the KC-135 are different than those used on the B-707 for extra fuel capacity, drag reduction and because the turbocompressors are mounted under the wing-root.

But do all the KC-135's have the same wing-body fairings? The KC-135E seems to have a different wing/body fairing than the KC-135A, but maybe it's just the angle the photo's taken from.

Shouldn't this be in Tech/Ops?

The KC-135 that I own has a different fairing than what is on my 707.

Quoting Blackbird (Thread starter):

1) There is no fuel stored in the wing to body fairing on a KC-135.
2) A KC-135 is not a B707. Two different planes, but they do come from the same linage.
