KC-135 Technical Info?

Fri Sep 20, 2002 10:16 am

Anyone out there know where any information is on the basics of the KC-135. Basic systems information, ops limits and boldface. I am getting ready to go to Altus for Copilot initial qual training on the R model and wanted to get a little advance info on the plane. I haven't come across anything in my search of the web.

I guess you know the Air Force Fact Sheet on

Also you probably get useful information when you email the KC-135 operating units or bases (public affairs officer etc.). I made good experience with those folks.

Go to and search for KC-135 to find links to the units websites. Maybe they even have some additional information on their pages.

The only guy here that would have that kind of info would be Lt AWACs.
To bad he's on deployment in Saudi.
