This is a sad picture! The picture attached is of the first three "R" models sent to the Bone Yard. As of this month, there are already 12. 57-2593,
58-0008, 58-0114, 58-0130, 60-0319, 60-0321, 61-0302, 61-0306, 61-0312, 62-3546, 62-3548, and 63-8037.
Sources tell me that Fairchild is sending another one next week down there. Slowly but surely they are being retired and eventually replaced with the
KC-46. On the way to the boneyard, they refueled a KC-10 in a symbolic gesture!
