Boeing RC-135 Rivet Joint airplane model. The USAF RC-135V/W RIVET JOINT surveillance aircraft are equipped with an extensive array of sophisticated intelligence gathering equipment enabling military specialists to monitor the electronic activity of adversaries. Also known as "RJ", the aircraft are sometimes called "hogs" due to the extended "hog nose" and "hog cheeks". RIVET JOINT has been widely used in the 1990's -- during Desert Storm, the occupation of Haiti, and most recently over Bosnia. Using automated and manual equipment, electronic and intelligence specialists can precisely locate, record and analyze much of what is being done in the electromagnetic spectrum.

It's perfect

I received the RC-135V/W Rivet Joint model last week. It’s perfect. It brings back memories as my time as a RAVEN 2/3 Mission Director from 1982-1985. We flew reconnaissance missions out of England, Greece and Okinawa.

Thank you,
