RC-135s are reconnaissance versions of C-135s. These aircraft have different names for each variant. Their history also involves a lot of intrigue. The RC-135S Cobra Ball is a rapidly deployable aircraft that flies on high priority missions at the direction of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Cobra Ball collects optical and electronic data on missiles. From their initial deployment in March 1972 Cobra Ball operated on a 24-hour alert status out of Shemya AFB, Alaska.i In 1994 the RC-135Ss were moved to Offutt AFB, Nebraska.ii On September 1, 1983 Soviet Sukhoi Su-15 pilot, then Major Gennadi Osipovitchiii, shot down a Korean Air Lines Boeing 747 with the ironic flight number KAL007. The shootdown killed all 269 people on board the jetliner. U.S. opinion was divided into two camps. Some believed the Soviet Union deliberately shot down a civilian jetliner. Others believed KAL007 was either on a spy mission or the U.S. was using the off course 747 as a target of opportunityâ€ to test Soviet reaction times. The Air Force Intelligence Service (AFIS) theorized the Soviet pilots misidentified the Korean Air Lines 747 as Cobra Ball. Cobra Ball had flown a mission in that area earlier in the night. The incident and AFIS’s role in analyzing it was dramatized in the 1989 docudrama Tailspin: Behind the Korean Airliner Tragedyiv. The AFIS theory was generally believed to be accurate until after the fall of The Soviet Union. Colonel Osipovitch admitted he knew he was shooting down a 747. On March 2, 2003 four North Korean fighters shadowed a Cobra Ball for 20 minutes. One of the fighters locked on to the RC-135S. Cobra Ball had to abort its mission.

My father, his brother James and many from the local area learnt to play there. I started by standing on a wooden fruit box, so I could see over the cushion properly. I had a side-arm cue action then, but as I got taller it turned over to be the cue action I talk about today. Stick with your practice.
