Of 509th Air Refuelling Sqn., 509th Bomb. Wg., SAC, Pease AFB, NH. The famous "atomic bomb" unit operated FB-111A's and KC-135's at the time; now is sole B-2 Spirit unit. This tanker, powered by the original J-57-49PW's (so-called "stovepipes"), thunders aloft spewing sooty exhaust trails, indicative of a water-injection "heavyweight" takeoff.
