  1. As a RB-45C co-pilot 61 years ago and have made at least 50 hook-ops, I find myself frustrated because I can’t remember how the pilot director lights looked and what each light combination meant–I am doing some research for an artist who is doing a highly detailed painting of the RB-45C on the boom of a KB-29P . It is a view from below and slightly behind the tanker. If anyone can help us, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for documenting our history. Capt. Maury Seitz, USAF (Retired) 91st Strat Recon Wing , 323rd Strat Recon Sqdn and 91st Air Refueling Squadron–1950-1953
