    I went to the air show at Offutt AFB in Bellevue,Nebraska. Here are some pics.

    Really nice work, Doug, I like these! You had a good selection of subjects to shoot.

    You talking about the third photo? That's an E-3B Sentry, which is the only one of these based on the 707 airframe. The second photo looks like an RC-135V/W Rivet Joint aircraft, which is modified from the KC-135 line. That is a cool capture, along with the E-4. And from the protuberance on the side of that last -135 looking aircraft, I'd guess it is the WC-135 Constant Phoenix sniffer aircraft.

    No Manny, that's an RC-135 Rivet Joint surveillance aircraft. It's based on the KC-135 line, which is different from the 707.

    Oh yeah, I think there's some sort of "Cold War Museum" in the Dallas suburbs. That must have been it. Interesting!

    I'm not sure. I don't see them listed in the program. Here's a picture of one of the planes.
