Yesterday I was on my deck and just happened to look up (ok, I do that a lot ) and see two airliners flying in tandem. I grabbed my camera and took some snaps as they flew over.
Barely pulled any detail, I was shooting a sigma 400mm with a 2x teleconvertor about straight up, hand-held. These are crops from the originals.
Looks like a KC-10 refuelling a 707-300 variant of some sort, which I can’t ID. It is not an E-6B, C-18A/B, E-18B, TC-18E/F (wrong engines), E8-C JSTARS lacks the larger nose.
It has an extended nose and belly pod, blue or black stripe high on tail. I can’t find photos of an E8-A.
Its the same type of aircraft being refueled as photographed on this page:
Any ideas on what it is?
