Look what is parked on the East Ramp - three KC-135s and a C-17. Does the crew have tickets to today's game in Ann Arbor? U of M vs the Air Force Academy?

Also, in the airpark, the Phantom, the Voo Doo, and the Thunderflash sneak close to the fence, ready to make their move to the Museum grounds.

Finally, the YAM's newest aircraft appears on the East ramp - the DC-8.
