The Boeing KC-135 has proven to be an indispensable tool for the US Air Force, sustaining and increasing the endurance of both pilot and plane, allowing global reach and force multiplication to any mission.
In "AirBridge III", by artist Dru Blair, several KC-135's are depicted lining up for takeoff as the crews prepare to launch a vital support mission. The fog shrouded runway creates an aura of intrigue and mystique, and is consistent with the quiet reputation of this essential, but often overlooked, aircraft as it carries out its critical task.
In "AirBridge III," by artist Dru Blair, rounds out the trilogy which includes "The AirBridge," and "AirBridge II" both of which sold out soon after its release. "AirBridge III" expands on the theme of anticipation, intrigue, and mystique.
