BOEING KC-135 STRATOTANKER

$9.95

Title: Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker No’s 1 and 2

The Boeing 707 first flew as the Boeing model 367-80 in July 1954. The USAF ordered the aircraft into production as the KC-135 aerial refueling aircraft. Boeing developed a slightly larger version of the aircraft as the Boeing 707 airliner which first entered service in 1958. A large number of variants of both basic models have been used in US and foreign military service, and many have been re-engined with more modern turbofan engines such as the CFM56.

We offer two titles covering the KC-135. The first contains very early documentation from the 1950’s for the early variants of the aircraft in USAF service. The second title covers the KC-135 as used by the USAF in the early twenty-first century, in two basic versions, one with the low-bypass ratio TF33 turbofan engines (KC-135E), and the other using the military version of the CFM56 turbofan (KC-135R/T). Both types feature modernised cockpits. The files have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages, unless otherwise stated. Each title is US$9.95.
