Thank you for the pictures Boomer, it's great to see the heavies too
@gariac: That's the E-3D as used by the Royal Air Force, you can see the red and blue roundel on the top surface of the aircraft's port outboard
wing section, just beyond engine no. 1. It's capable of using both probe-and-drogue and flying boom systems. In the photo, it is E-3D ZH105.
@Boomer, a small observation, in your photo labelled as a JSTARS, is that in fact a RC-135V/W Rivet Joint? It appears to have the extended nose radome
in addition to the side mounted sensor blisters.
