When the government decided to close Kelly AFB the city
of San Antonio teamed with Boeing and other contractors
to buy the facility and continue it's mission using civilians.
So the USAF's transports like the C5A and new C17, as well as
the KC135 and KC10 aerial tankers still undergo routine
maintenance and upgrades in the same giant hangars as before.
On a recent visit to that side of town I got this shot of
two KC10s behind a Union Pacific train waiting to leave the
Quintana Rd yard.
