This was the sharpest 135 in the Air Force inventory at the time. I flew this exact airplane many times between 1983 and 1987 while at Tinker AFB. The mechanics spent many hours cleaning and polishing it to keep it in show quality condition. It made many trips to RAF Mildenhall during this time period. Mike
