Where Can I Find NKC-135 Interior Photos And Info

Fri Feb 05, 2010 4:43 am

I have recently developed an interest in the NKC-135, since I was in Dayton recently and saw it first hand. I have googled it and not turned up much in the way of interior photos. I know that there is probably not much to look at, but I would like a general idea of the layout. Does anyone know where I could find interior photos, cutaways, etc.?

There is not much of interest in the NKC-135s for anyone to take pictures. The USAF has some, but the interiors change several times, depending on mission requirements. You probibly will not find interior pictures of most RC-135s and EP-3s, either. But that is mostly due to the classified equipment.

Find a copy of "Airborne Laser; Bullets of Light" by Robert W. Duffner. Its full of great pictures of the NKC-135, including interior pictures and diagrams.

I don't think NKC-135A/E 55-3123 is flying any more, I believe she has been retired.

She's been in the USAF Museum for a looong time......

edit: sorry tried to post a photo from the database but a.net won't allow it. Take a look at photo id 1094907
