PHX KC135 Info Request

Sun Nov 12, 2017 9:01 am

Hi folks,

Would anyone be able to help me identify six KC135s which were parked outside the Arizona Air National Guard hangars at PHX last month? I know it's a long shot, especially given a month has passed but I'm hoping that they were part of the regular fleet and easy to identify. I was in the terminal building so even with binoculars couldn't make out any identifying marks. It was Thursday 12th October.

Any help is much appreciated :)

I'd imagine they all belong to the 161st Air Refueling Wing which is based there.

They're stationed at KPHX, so they're usually parked there unless they're up in the air or deployed. If you look at some pictures of them at KPHX in the database, you can probably get the tail numbers.

Yeah I thought they would have been them but had been struggling to find any info on their fleet, I'll just check out the pictures and work from there :)

Cheers,
