KC-10 Extender Wooden Model
Military Mahogany is proud to announce this updated release of the KC-10 Extender complete with display stand. This newest release features a fully extended boom, much more detailed panel lines as well as cockpit windows, vertical tail fin antenna, detailed engine fan blades, even the detailed boom can be displayed stowed or extended.
The KC-10 was delivered to the USAF Strategic Air Command (SAC), then in control of air refueling assets from 1981 to 1987. SAC had KC-10 Extenders in service from 1981 until 1992, when they were re-assigned to the newly established Air Mobility Command. In the air-to-air refueling (AAR) role, the KC-10s have been operated largely in the strategic refueling of large number of tactical aircraft on ferry flights and the refueling of other strategic transport aircraft. Conversely, the KC-135 fleet has operated largely in the in-theater tactical role.
