Restoring the Looking Glass

After 6 years and more than 32,000 volunteer hours, the Boeing EC-135 “Looking Glass” has been restored to its former glory. At the height of the Cold War, this aircraft was part of Strategic Air Command’s “Operation Looking Glass,” which mirrored the nuclear command control at Offutt Air Force Base. Now, this historic aircraft is on display at the Strategic Air and Space Museum in Ashland.
