I did not know it but Jan 17 was the 30th anniversary of the KC-10 in the service of the USAF. These are wonderful aircraft, I have been fortunate to deploy in them on a few occasion and they offer the seating in comfort up front for the deploying maintenance crew and space in the back for all of our pallets. Plus they refueled the F-15's enroute to our TDY location. They also have enjoyed over the years the highest fully mission capable rate in the Air Force. By far one of the few things that the Air Staff has gotten right, to bad the didn’t buy more.
