62-6000 was a VC-137"C" model, though it had the same nose landing gear follow up door as the C-137B's and C-135B's
I always thought 26000 & 27000 were essentially identical structurally. No?
I'll have to go look at some pix.
edit: add pix to show different NLG door config.
I learn something new everyday. I've got 707 books that go back almost 40 years. I worked with these two aircraft for a number of years.. And I never noticed the difference in the gear doors. Just looked at the Barry Schiffs 707 book that I bought in 1970 - sure enough some 707s in the book have the different setup. cool.
