You don't see this much anymore



I grabbed the top photo off the Air Force’s website. Minimum Interval Take Off of some tankers in Europe, and below a MITO B-52 many years ago. MITO was used to get all the planes into the air as fast as humanly possible (in case the airbase was nuked by a Russian ICBM). Kind of neat to see the KC-135 with new engines as the original airframe is really just a 707.]]>
