One of the largest planes we see flying around the New Hampshire seacoast area is the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, a refueling support craft for the U.S. Air Force. On a given day, an entire fleet of them may land or take off at Pease International Tradeport, formerly known as Pease Air Force Base. They’re huge plans, and I’ve often wondered what would happen if one of them ever had a problem landing—short of destroying everything in its path. In real life, that would be devastating, but in Unidentified Phenomenon, it’s one of the pivotal moments of Quinn’s superhero career.
In order to create the scene, I grabbed satellite imagery of the area and then overlaid several different flight paths until I found the one that made the most sense to me. With a flight path and several superhero actions in place, the scene unfolded and I finalized the image below. Enjoy!
