Boeing KC-97L Stratofreighter

The KC-97 is the direct predecessor of the KC-135 aircraft. In fact, the last KC-97 and the first KC-135 were rolled out of the Boeing assembly plant the same day. The KC-97 saw service well into the Vietnam Conflict era. Later, they were phased out of active service and transferred to Air National Guard units for the remainder of their careers. The last were retired in 1977. The aircraft on display at Castle Air Museum saw service with the Strategic Air Command and later with several Air National Guard units before being retired. It was recovered from the Air Force Storage Facility in Arizona. It was restored to flying condition and flew into Castle Air Force Base to join the Castle Museum collection.
