USAF VC-135B 62-4129 with 'United States of America' titles, at RAAF Base Fairbairn in 1983. Barriers and security lighting have been positioned for an over-night stay. This aircraft is a 'Sister-Ship' to Military Airlift Command C-135B 62-4126 which I photographed at Fairbairn in September 1968. (Photos on Airliners.net and MyAviation.net.) 62-4129 was later modified to TC-135W configuration, and based with 55WG at Offut AFB. Low res photo.

This is a terrific shot of ole "One Too Niner" as we affectionately called her! I flew this aircraft while assigned at Offutt AFB in the Command Support Aircraft Division, SAC in the 70's. Nice shot of a great aircraft. I was the NCOIC while assigned there. Also flew 62-4130, her sister. The photo shows all the detail so well, it's if I were standing on the flight line again looking at an old friend.

Take care all, Command Chief Buzz
