Garry, those look like pictures of 57-2589 "Casey Zero One" a KC-135E that flew at Offut, Hickam and then with the 412 FLTS at Edwards AFB were it retired. The inboard engines had turbo compressors (very distinctive engine struts like on a 707) It now sets as a static display/trainer at the Madina annex of Lackland AFB. I was an F.E. and my wife a flight attendant on that airplane - loved it.

I was an aerial weather observer at Yakota AB in Japan from mid 1968 to mid 1970. I flew many missions on 12671. It was a good airplane - it got beat up a bit when it crashed on the runway in 1970, but the repair obviously went well.

I was a Flight Attendant with Det 1 from 1979-1983. Flew many great "trips" on 671 and 668, also 127, 376 and a couple Blue Eagles. We had about the best gang you would want to fly with. Dennis Lyson was my crew chief back in the B-58 program. Good luck.

My father (Gerald R Cummings) was crew chief of 671 in the early and mid-70's at Hickam. I liked the plane better when it had a grey belly. But it was a nice looking plane, inside and out.

I was stationed at Hickam AFB from '78 thru '82, but I was at the Blue Eagle section. I've flown with 671 back to the mainland one time and it was(betta) as comfy as bizness class. Thanks to(crazy) Victor.

Greetings All, I was a Flt. Eng with Det 1 89th MAW, from Jun 84- Oct 87. I was quite surprised and saddened when I drove by Tinker (in Jun 94)and saw 671 on display. I guess she died of cancer(corosion). I had lots of great times in 671 and 668, had a "copilot landing" in 668(copilot had a mild heart attack).Luv to catch up with all ...

Greg Kochis, Jerry Gibson, Gary Landel, Whitney Warren, and I crewed 671 76-79. It was where I learned to be a CREW CHIEF and never accepting "NO" for an answer.

I was a crew chief on 2671 from '81-'86 at Hickam AFB.That was a really good duty and also being a local at home.All of the flight crews and maintenace crews were all good guys. It was alot of work though before and after each mission.I can proudly tell people that I was part of the Command Crew elite.

I think the two new pics are of 59-1518 not 2671. When did you take them? Not to be really picky but after working on 1518 for 10 years in the 8th TDCS--you can spot it real easy, I am sure you can relate. Look at the Inbd engine struts also I think the two new pics have INMARSAT--I don't think 671 had that.
