Delivered in February 1986, this KC-10 tanker was deployed to the Middle East five years later during Operation Desert Storm to liberate Kuwait. Special nose art depicting a chained alligator was applied below the cockpit on the left side. Since alligators abound in the swamps of Louisiana, the crew jokingly assigned this animal the role of yard dog for the state. She is the first KC-10 in the 1/500 scale to sport the “Shamu” camouflage scheme, named for the famous Orca, that performed in shows at Sea World in the United States for several years.
