I'm trying to find a photo of NC-135B 61-2662 (sometimes identified as JC-135B) that shows the top of the fuselage. This plane had a large SATCOM dome on the top of the fuselage.

Thanks so much.
Hi guys, I need the help of the ARC-Community. I've recently purchased a second-hand 1/72 AMT RC-135V and plan to convert her into a RC-135E Rivet Amber.
