99190 Corgi   KC-97L - 121st ARW & F-4D Phantom (2,414) DISPLAYED £
      Out of stock
  Corgi AA99190: 1/144 scale Boeing KC-97L Stratotanker of 121st Air Refuelling Wing, Ohio Air National Guard, USAF based at Lockbourne AFB, Ohio in 1974 (Re-fuelling a F-4D Phantom). KC-97 model wingspan 298mm. Limited edition of 2,414 pieces. The set allows the Phantom to be displayed with the KC-97 refuelling boom inserted in the "in flight" configuration. PLEASE NOTE: This set has been previously displayed (hence the low price) as there are witness marks on the boom where it has been inserted into the Phantom. This does not show with the set on display. ABSOLUTE BARGAIN!

The C-97 was the military transport version of the Boeing Stratocruiser. Between 1943 and 1950. 74 Stratofreighters were ordered; the first flight occured on November 15th 1944. A tanker version (KC-97) was introduced in 1950 using the "flying boom" refuelling system and all subsequent USAF contracts for C-97s were for tankers.
