USAF C135

Post by Frosty »

This is an ancient picture of my dad's.
Pictured is a USAF C135 that accompanied President Richard Nixon on his arrival at Shannon in October 1970, what exact variant is it, why is it painted so stylishly and what was it used for does anyone know?
Note the strange forward door....
Thanks in advance.

c135 is the military version and usually that means that everything that can be upgraded IS upgraded.

On the outside, it looks a cargo door, but look inside this - it is blocked-up, with just a small normal entrance.....
