I know there are lots of UH1's, C130's and the like still in service, but I assume most of those still around are much newer builds
|Quoting Dc8jet (Reply 3):|
I'm sure that some of the KC-135s are still in service although they have been re-engined. Also I think some of the AFRES units still have a few C-141s.
|Quoting Duce50boom (Reply 4):|
By some, I'm sure you mean around 450 KC-135s still in service. The youngest rolled off the line in 1965. B-52s I think 63 or 64. Still a few 141s left at Wright-Patterson. Alot of the C-130Es are from the early to mid 60s.

One of the C-141s at WPAFB, The Hanoi Taxi, is the airplane that brought the POWs home.. It was still operational last I checked, it was recently repainted in the same scheme it wore when it went to Hanoi... It will be going to the USAF museum when it is retired.
