The KC-135 is going to have to remain in service much longer . It has don Yeoman Duty for a very long time .But some genius decided you can replace real eye hand coordination , via a game console up front . If it works ...don't fix it , comes to mind . And how about , Keep it simple .....Stupid . But does everything have to be ultra complicated these days ?

The KC-135 and the B-52 a super combination for a long, long time. Don't mess with success.
Nice shot.

You must have been standing right beside Matt when he took the same picture and you both have the same dust in the same place on your sensor? Amazing coincidence!

Are you kidding me? I always believed his posts were pics he actually took himself. But seeing this .... Swipes a pic and then doesn't even edit out the sensor specks before reposting it as his own? I wonder how many of his good pics aren't really his after all? TY for exposing the fraud here, Dave.

Yes, DGR Rathborne, with today's Air Farce leadership, everything has to be complicated; you know, because fighters are somewhat complicated....
Gary... notice the absence of Chris' "trademark" date and time stamp. What Dave has found explains it!!!
