Served at Eielson from 1983 till 1999. I got to see the TC135 roll its way down the ramp for that first trip onto the ramp. Cant for get to mention that first trip for the "Eye". Like all the other ladies she was late for her first trip to Shemya. From the Eyes and the Ears of the Ball.

I was a Cobra Ball Crew Chief From 1989 to 1999. During that time I had the privilege of working and deploying with the best folks in the world. We worked the least understood, most under appreciated but most important reconnaissance aircraft ever known. I'm talking about the RC-135S and X Cobra Ball / Cobra Eye aircraft. To the mechanics who worked on them to the pilots who flew them to the "back enders" who operated the toys in them. We kept the nuclear balance in check, and the real world will never know the truth. Thank you,
