My good friend Marty, who is a Aviation photographer (Nikon), says that is a Boeing KC-97 StratoFreighter developed for refueling in flight, which he flew on from Guam to Japan when he worked for Lockheed many years ago. It was based upon the C-97 StratoFreighter, a military transport, which evolved from the B-29. While only 60 C-97 transports were built, 816 were built as KC-97 for inflight refueling and that is the one you photographed that the Ohio Nat Guard owns.
