    An aircraft with a sextant
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2009 Sep 2, 13:50 -0700

    A description of the interior of a KC-135 tanker:
    "The cockpit is even more startling. Time capsule doesn't begin to describe 
    it. The navigator's desk is held together by duct tape. The seats are covered 
    with Mad Men-era light shag. There's even a sextant still embedded in the 
    ceiling of the cockpit - in case anyone needs to navigate by starlight."
    
    The article is entitled "Ancient Jet Keeps the U.S. Air War Flying". Ancient. 
    Bah. It's only fifty years old. You can read the rest of it here:
