While on a day hike in the northeast corner of the Olympics, this pair of Airforce jets made quite a sight. The lead plane is a Boeing 767 tanker and the one just below and trailing very close looks like a Boeing KC-135 aerial tanker. Estimate that they were at 25,000 feet heading to the northwest (Vancouver Island). Side by side, it' striking to see how the 767 dwarfs the KC-135.Imagine that this was a test of the new 767 tanker. Wonder if Congressman Norm Dicks and Pentagon brass were on board the 767.
