Title:
Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker, Nellis, 63-8886, 319 ARW
This KC-135 was converted to KC-135R. With 376th AEW, 92nd ARW, landed at Manas IAP, Kyrgistan Sep 26, 2006 and stopped at the intersection of the active runway and a taxiway, its crew having apparently misunderstood instructions from air traffic control (and the crew's response was also misunderstood by the tower). This aircraft was then struck by a russian built Tu-154M EX-85718 which had been cleared for takeoff. The Tu-154M lost 6 feet from its right wingtip but was able to complete its takeoff and return for an emergency landing.
