    Omega Tanker 707-300 KNHK pics

    Greetings,
    I made a quick trip down to Patuxent NAS to get some shots of the Omega Tanker 707-300. I have been wanting to get an Omega Tanker 707 for about 13 years now. I was hoping for a new frame but it was N707MQ. I had shot this frame in 1999 or 2000 as VIP Aircraft HZ-HM3
    (Royal Saudi Flight).

    A "quick trip" - what is it, about 6 hours each way down there? You should send one of the clones... ;-)

    I caught Omega in LAS several years back working a Red Flag contract.
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Thanks John,
    Oh we stayed the night in the DC area :) I had planned to be down for 3 days or so but since I got the Omega the first day We just came back the next morning.
    Without trafic its about 4 hours to DC and then 1 extra hour south to NHK. The hardest part of that drive is from DC to Patuxent. Long and lots of traffic lights.


    727C47,
    They do seem to get around a lot. Usually 6 hours or more from me :) I would have gone to Oceana NAS to get them but figured I would just wait for another NHK arrival.
    Glad I can finally kill all my alerts from all sources for this one.

    Senga
