Beautiful shot

I used a Nikormat FT2 for many years beginning in 1977. Had the camera 'til about 5 years ago.

When I moved to Miami in 1979 there were still 2 of these old K97 in civilian clothes running cargo to the Islands out of KMIA
I lived close enough to the airport you could hear the sweet sound of those compound radials

L model 97's are awesome!
Excellent shot! At just about the same time as this photo was taken, I was involved in qualifying the A-37 'Dragonfly' for refueling from KC's. Brings back some great memories.

Crossed the pond multiple times on these. Solid platform. You can lay back there in the boomers position looking down for hours and see absolutely nothing but water.

First military plane I ever flew in for my first ANG "Summer Camp." KTCM to KMUO. Summer of '65.
Haven’t seen specs like this in a while.
When did the Air Force installed a couple of jet engines a la B-36 on the 97s. What was the max speed with and sans jet engines.
robin guess
@chalet The KC-97L has a listed top speed of 400Kts. IIRC the jet engines were only fired up for short periods to assist in refueling of fighters and B-52's as the BUFF had to fly full flaps and rear gear deployed and refuel in a shallow dive prior to the addition of jets to the KC-97.

My cousin was a boom operator on this plane.
