カデK台風避難
Jun 1988 横田基地

これは台風避難で嘉手納から横田へ飛来、その後嘉手納へ帰投する時のもの。

今は静かでいい子チャンの飛行機ばかりですが、当時は色んな意味で「悪い」飛行機が多かったですね。離陸時の爆音と煙は忘れられません。

Boeing KC-135A N931NA, otherwise known as 'The Vomit Comet.' This aircraft was used for a number of years by NASA to simulate weightlessness for astronauts and astronauta in training. It was also used in the movie 'Apollo 13' to recreate the events that took place during that mission.

Though I left Boeing due to it (at least the position I was in) not being for me, being part of the KC-46 Tanker program was pretty cool. So when I saw this KC-135 model at the vintage trunk show I had to pick it up.

Dr. von Braun inside the KC-135 in flight. The KC-135 provide NASA's Reduced-Gravity Program the unique weightlessness or zero-g environment of space flight for testing and training of human and hardware reactions. The recent version, KC-135A, is a specially modified turbojet transport which flies parabolic arcs to produce weightlessness periods of 20 to 25 seconds and its cargo bay test area is approximately 60 feet long, 10 feet wide, and 7 feet high.
