Last KC-135E Retires

After more than 50 years of service the last serving KC-135E Tanker was retired last Friday at Davis Monthan AFB. Tail number 56-3630 will continue to serve for years to come as it is stripped of parts for the rest of the fleet. Its age and service like the rest of the fleet are a testimony to solid design and great maintenance over the years.
