Boeing KC-97

It's been on my to-do list to check out Floyd Bennett Field for awhile now, and yesterday I happened to be dropping my mother off at JFK airport and so stopped by on the way home. This aircraft was parked outside a hangar. It's a Boeing KC-97 Stratofreighter, an aerial re-fueling tanker that operated from the 1950s-70s. This one has been refurbished by the Historic Aircraft Restoration Project (HARP) . The hangar wasn't open to the public when I was there, but apparently there are a bunch more vintage aircraft inside. A return visit is in order someday.
