Well, unless Biden gets into the Oval Office that is.
It's more than just the engines. The C-135 is based on the Boeing 707, and parts just aren't available for it anymore. At least not without cannibalizing other airframes. Plus, even with more fuel efficient engines, a Gulfstream can do the same job for probably less than half the cost per flight hour.Rather like the BUFF, could an engine replacement program keep them viable? The new BUFF engines for a start.
