Military Airlift Command (MAC) C-135B 62-4126 taxies onto the RAAF Fairbairn apron during the CINPAC VIP Visit to Canberra on 06Aug1968. (CINPAC was Adm. John S. McCain, Jr, USN, wef 31Jul1968). This aircraft was later upgraded to a VC-135B (with blue/white paint scheme) for VIP duties, and carried 'United States of America' titles. She re-appeared in late 2006 as an RC-135V 'Rivet Joint' aircraft, operated by 55WG Offutt AFB. I also photographed 'Sister-Ship' VC-135B 62-4129 in Canberra in 1983.
