Trivia Question : KC-114A

Mon May 13, 2002 1:58 am

In case any of you guys on this forum like this sort of thing, here's another trivia question re. aircraft types (a bit more modern than WW2 this time):

Can you describe what the KC-114A was going to be (it was never built)?

Only clue: it was replaced by essentially the same aircraft built under a different designation.

Some kind of air-refueling version of the C-54 (or rather it's experimental modification, the [X]C-114)?

KC-114A is used paralell with KE-3 on Saudi B707 tankers, that's all I know!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Propulsor was in the ballpark and Contact_tower was spot-on ... KC-114A was the original designation for the Saudi Air Force's KE-3A tankers (based on the B707-700 airframe). The original order for 5 KC-114As was cancelled and replaced by an order for 6 KE-3As (+ another 2 later).

Well done!

Not 100% certain of this bit, but I understand that the essential difference between the two types is that the KC-114A was to going to be JT3D/TF33-powered, whereas the KE-3As are CFM56-powered.
