At Beale AFB. Each side of the RC-135 has an expanded fuselage in front of the wing. One only knows what capabilities the Electronic Snoop nose carries.

Details of the hull tell me SO much antennas the aircraft brings into air for use of NSA-listening equipment and work with the NSA station in Japan and why they did not squaak the KAL 007.

Also, the time frame Aug.31-1983-Sept.1 1983 these aircraft were flying Cobra Ball and Cobra Judy missions off the coast of Russia.
Cobra Ball is a little different from this aircraft. This is a Cobra Judy.
