Delivered to the Air Force on 3 March 1965, this is a version of the KC-135 that was modified to be an aerial command post, "Operation Night Watch", on standby 24/7 to fly the POTUS out of Washington in case of nuclear attack. It was retired to AMARG on 31 March 1992 with only 13,692 hours. Later donated to the Pima Air Museum in 1993.
