A USAF KC-135A from Clark AFB in the Philippines, at RAAF Base Amberley for Exercise Summer Rain, just after the January 1976 floods. The aircraft has pure-jet engines which required de-mineralised water injection to operate from Amberley's runway. The water injection generated very smoky departures. (This aircraft was later converted to a KC-135R with CFM-56 engines.)
