It was a great plane but did have some issues...one being visibility behind the cockpit. The US couldn't figure out what to do to help the Pilot and WSO (Weapon Systems Officer or Wizzo) spot the bad guys at the plane's 6. Israel flew the plane as well and had the same issue. So they ordered a ton of rear view mirrors from Western Auto and installed them in their planes. Problem solved.
