I was an assistant crew chief on this bird while I was stationed at Offutt from 1981-1983. It was indeed the prettiest and best performing aircraft in the 55th OMS.

I was one of the last crew chiefs on this bird. I launched her from Offutt on her last flight to the boneyard in 98. If nothing has changed....my name should still be on the side with 5 others. 8046 was the best in the 7ACCS, the prettiest, and the one with the least hours at on ly arond 30k. It was hard work getting her looking that good though...we'd spend hours on the weekends shining ring cowls and aft sleeves, but boy was it worth it to go out on the line when it was sunny and almost be blinded by the shine! It was a competetion between us crew dawgs to see who could have the best looking plane. A few freinds claim that 8052 was the best...but no way. We had embroidered pilot headrests with their names and wings on them, and the same for the aft crew seats, with all the crew chief names on them. we even had blue and white linoleom time floor in the lavs, with blue toilet seats! And to top it off, we had 4 headrests...wit h 1, 2, 3 and 4 stars on them, and would put the proper headrest on the generals chair when we knew what rank general was flying for the day. MX wise....no major problems that any other tanker didnt have. Those were some fuuuunnnn days working on her....my first USAF plane, until the 7ACCS retired, and I went to the E4 in the 1ACCS.
