KC-135 side view by Jetta-Windstar KC-135 side view by Jetta-Windstar
Finally got some good pictures of a KC-135 XD. The angle was chosen for perspective because of the wings and sheer size of it.

I think this one's a C-17.

I'm quite sure I was looking at a KC-135, they look rather similar but I'm certain thats what I was told.

The KC-135 is very similar to the 707, so it's low wing, not high and has a conventional tail plane & fin rather than the C-17's 'T' tail (not visible in the photo)

The C-135 series doesn't have a tail ramp, which you can see extended in your photo. Also a KC-135 would have the refuelling boom on the rear under fuselage.

Most definitely a C-17 in the photo. :)
