Well, "Sometime in February" from my last post came up on Wednesday the 15th. My first receiver was a C-5 (possibly even the one in this picture) from 56AS out of Altus AFB, OK. The view is amazing and looks very much like the picture; you can easily tell which pilot is talking to you just by reading their lips. It was a unique experience to have the Vice Wing commander, Col. Mark Dillon as the receiver pilot, a very steady pilot indeed.

Very nice photo, I am currently at Altus AFB in training to become a Boom Operator on a KC-135R, I should make my first real contact sometime in Feburary.

Stunning view of a military monster. The shadow adds a nice touch as well

There is a big fuel spot over the top of the fuselage. Doesn´t the tanker crew have to wait until all the fuel is gone before they remove the air pump? T.B.

Stunning view! The pilots looking up to see what's going on, the shadow on the nose showing the tanker's wing and engine, the little bit of the boom in the top of the picture and of course the beautiful C-5 itself. The wrinkly skin is also interesting.

This is an excellent show because the ground is clear, you can see the pilot and co-pilot looking up. I also like the shadow over the nose of the plane.
