This Tracker's paint has faded so much that she is showing a ghostly '7Y' tail code of RAW-73, NAS Grosse Ile, MI. The base closed in 1969 and it's units and aircraft moved to NAF Detroit. She became N433DF with the CDF.
7th October 1994, this was a line up of BUFF rear fuselage sections and tail units which had already been guillotined. The 3rd fin from the right is clearly that of B-52F 57-0035 which was last operated by the 93rd BW and entered MASDC November 1978.
Another sectioned BUFF from my 7th October 1994 AMARC tour. I did catch this chopped up B-52D forward fuselage however I was not able to identify her. The tail fin behind her cockpit belongs to 55-0087.
Some exotic Stratotankers in this line-up. Identifiable aircraft from the left NKC-135A 55-3120 and 55-3122 last operated by the 4950th TW out of Wright-Patterson, OH. Then EC-135C 63-8047 last operated by the 2nd ACCS / 55th W out of Offut, NE.
This is KC-135A 62-3563 pcn CA 097 entered AMARC March 1994 and last operated by the 917th ARS / 96th W out of Dyess, TX. Love the Shamu paint scheme. She was converted to KC-135R standard and left AMARC for Turkey in December 1997.
