Is it a trick of the lens or does the vertical stab look to be canted off to the port side about 5 degrees?
Tim Marks - what you are seeing is the aerial refueling probe... :-)
Tim , but the plane does have a tail !great shot
what is the big boy doing for biz ?
Chuck Pergiel
The probe fooled me too. It's right where you would expect to see the tail, but it's not. Thanks for clearing that up.
I wonder who gets the job of tethering all 4 of those massive eight bladed props, to bed her down for the night when they are away from home base? It can be tricky to do, even with the free turbine twin PT6A powered Kingair...

Frederik deCockBuning, it was for an airshow at that airport.
