I attended the AIAA conference on structures last April. One of the speakers, whose name I could look up if pressed, commented that the Air Force expects to keep flying KC-135s until the year 2034. Since this gent was from the Air Force and his paper had been through the same wringer mine have to go through, I assume this was a fairly official statement. The comment was also made that some of these tankers would be 80 years old at that time. Imagine some young pilot flying the plane his Great-Grandfather flew. Of course, I'm told we already have third generation B-52 pilots. Talk about aged aircraft.
