KC10 @ MDT, 7/6/06

Sat Jul 08, 2006 5:04 am

I was headed back to the office from lunch yeaterday, when over my head, about 2500ft, flys a KC10 turning on final to MDT! What an unexpected treat to see.

Anyone know what it was doing here? First time I've ever seen on around here.
I have seen C5's doing touch and go's at MDT before, but never a KC10.

Cool to see.

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

That's what I thought, but had never bothered to ask.
