The KC-135 always made me think of a giant Gatorade bottle in the sky. They`ve been around almost as long as the B-52 if not longer. Will go look that up right quick in a hurry. KC135 enter service 1957, B-52 1952. according to book titled Strategic Air Command.edit on 17-11-2013 by StratosFear because: (no reason given)
