You can actually stand up inside the saucer.

Interesting to see the fairly new ELINT antenna arrays aft of the cockpit ...
Nice shot @Daniel Jef , can someone answer this ?What's the difference between the JE-3 and the c-135 ? I left the A.F. in 1965 .
@ Robin Rebhan thank you
@ Al Miller yea your right about that one
@ Mark Lloyd O thats great
@ Avionics Shop that one i don't know
@ Mark Henley that's nice haven't seen it before
@ doug marshburn one is a early warning surveillance aircraft and one is a tanker. stand to be corrected.
@dougmarshburn The E-3 Sentry is a modified Boeing 707/320 commercial airframe. The C-135 Stratolifter is a transport aircraft derived from the prototype Boeing 367-80 jet airliner in the early 1950s. It has a narrower fuselage and is shorter than the 707. Boeing gave the aircraft the internal designation of Model 717
You can only stand in the rotodome if you are less than 6 feet tall!
