The KC-135 Stratotanker is a refueling aircraft based off the same airframe as the 707. It is just one of 6 fixed wing aircraft in the USAF with more than 50 years of servace. Here’s some good facts about it!
Max Altitude: (unable to find, anyone know what it is?)
Max Speed: 580
Range: 1,503 mi
Number built: 803
Engine type: varies (multiple re-engines have occurred)
Extra Facts: it can transfer enough fuel through the boom to fuel a typical family car for more than a year. The air frame has over 500,000 rivets. The tires have more rubber than 100 typical car tires. The cargo space separate from the refueling is equivalent to over 220 typical car trunks.
And the Pittsburgh livery would be great but one request, I know…
