Sitting amongst the "high-value asset" recce line-up (incl. an RC-135V, E-3, and E-8 JSTARS, among others) was this mysterious Dragon Lady, and one of the few original "R" models still flying, no less! Assigned to the Robins Air Materiel Area, AF Air Materiel Comm., it wears both the command insignia and a special code on the tail (which it shares- perhaps unknowingly- with Navy VP-24 Batmen). It is also listed as a write-off in one of my sources- "Rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated..." !!!
