Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

KC-135 Stratotanker topic

Post by Richard from Rotterdam »

Seeing there is already a Boeing 707 topic, I thought it might be an idea to start a new one with its military sister, the KC-135. Found an old photo of a KC-135A at Mildenhall (taken in 1990 I think) that makes a good start for this one. So: if you have any KC, EC, RC, TC, WC, C, NKC, GNKC or whatever 135 variant in your collection, start posting them here!

As far as I remember it was supposed to turn on the runway but took the wrong turn. It managed to get back on the runway anyway...
