At Beale AFB open house. One of the most secret 4-engine aircraft used by the USAF. Note the many antennae protruding from the bottom of the a/c. It has been long rumored, but never proven, that one of these a/c was flying right behind KAL flight 007 before it was shot down. Very little info is available on what the mission is for this jet.
