The early morning sun is wonderfully illuminating this amazingly clean F-106. It is one of the few which survived its use as a drone (see my pic in April 97). It arrived at AMARC on 23 Feb 98 and was the only B Model of the six "Red Tails". It flew at both Holloman and Tyndall. 59-0158 is a former Langley bird with the 48th FIS. It also served as a trainer for the Mercury astronauts. Since 25 Feb 03 it is displayed at the AFFTC Museum, Edwards AFB CA.

The 416th Flight Test Squadron is operating KC-135R in a grey/white/black color scheme. The aircraft is designated NKC-135R. In the US aircraft type designation system, the N is used for test. When the N is attached to the type designation, the concerned aircraft is permanently modified for flight test. So wiring, systems, avionica, aerodynamics, cockpit and so on, could be modified.
