Such an amazing plane, slowly dying. Great photo.

She will be missed. I was lucky enough to be TDY to RAF Brize-Norton from RAF Mildenhall and got to train with my RAF Aerial Port counterparts and did a little "training" on them as far as loading and unloading.

From a KC-10 veteran, it is so sad to see a tri-holer head for the boneyard. Hopefully it will be many many years before the -10's have the same fate.

A nice and truly historic picture. However, when I click on the 'Large' display menu option (above the picture), an invisible overlayed ad display opens a download page for some crapy app. It pisses me off that airliners.net lowers its standards to such stupid tricks.
