Processed Plastic Co - Boeing MATS C-135B Stratolifter

This is a first for the blog, a Boeing C-135B Stratolifter. The C-135 is an old bird with the first one being built in 1956. It was based on the Boeing 367-80 jet which was also the basis for the later - and very famous - 707. The airframe has been a staple of Air Force operations since 1956 and can still be seen flying as KC-135 Stratotanker's. It also did see use as transport aircraft for the Military Air Transport Service (MATS) as seen on the applique's of our Processed Plastic sample. The toy measures 12" (30.48cm) L x 11" (27.94cm) wingspan x 3" (7.62cm) H. Our sample is missing the rear wheel - only present on the toy version to keep it from being a tail-dragger. Enjoy!
