US Air Force's 64-14849

A US Air Force RC-135U from the 45th RS / 55th Wing, 64-14849 "Combat Sent 2" (c/n 18789, l/n 2310), made a stop at HIK. It arrived from LNK as TUSK14. This is one of the last four RC-135s still in service.

This is the final KC-135 that was built by Boeing, delivered in February 1965, and was converted to an RC-135B in 1967. It was converted to a"U" variant in 1971. It had the its JT3D powerplants replaced with CFM56s in the late 1990s.
