Great shot Kelvin, I got a long shot of one of these aircraft at Bangor Maine this summer.
Thanks Bryan. The interesting thing about these tankers is their age! Most of them are 1960s vintage and have been "re-skinned". It reminds me of a quote from an RAF pilot many years ago when there were Dakotas still flying. He said the only original thing on these aircraft was the manufacturer's name plate!
