I'll never forget 60-0376! My first duty day after processing into the 376th FMS A/R shop at Kadena, Okinawa, I was sent out to remove the elevators from it so they could repaint them. It was the 3rd Air Division CC's aircraft at that time, and he didn't lke the paint job Warner Robins put on it. So we had to repaint it when it came back. After spending my afternoon removing elevators on the stripped aluminum I was burned to a crisp! Got three days on quarters to recover. (Back then they could have court-martialed me! 1976-1978)

0376 came to Tinker and was assigned in early Jan 84 (per my nav hours log book) and was assigned to the 8th Tactical Deployment Control Sq. under the 552d AWACW. It's sister birds in the C-135 fleet were EC-135Ks 55-3118 and 59-1518 along with WC-135B-61-2667 used as a trainer to teach E-3 student pilots how to Air refuel and fly a multi-engine jet before stepping into the E-3A (707-320B). 0376 had the notoriety of being earmarked by a former US senator from Wisconsin to wear the coveted "Golden Fleece" Award. It earned this distinction from the VIP configuration in the cargo space as a care and comfort hauler for senior leadership. It's galley was fully equipped to include a china set that had a special storage cabinet to protect the settings from hard landing damage. Over the next couple of years we flew several missions for the 89th at Andrews when the requests for airlift exceeded their capability. Generally, the aircraft was assigned for DV duty for USSPACECOM.
