Wings Over Long Beach-Sunday

Went over to LB Airport to see some of the Airforce Military planes on display.
Tail shot of the Boeing KC-135R "Stratotanker."  The end piece with the "452" on it is where they refuel planes in mid air.

The Boeing KC-135R "Stratotanker" has been in service since 1957 and provides core aerial refueling support for the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.  The KC-135R is also capable of transporting litter and ambulatory patients.  It is a variant of the Boeing 707 and 720 series commercial airliners.
