Fueling the fight for RF-A 17-1

A U.S. Air Force pilot assigned to the 350th Air Refueling Squadron out of McConnell Air Force Base, Kan., keeps a KC-135 Stratotanker in formation as F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jets prepare to refuel Oct. 10, 2016, during a RED FLAG-Alaska (RF-A) 17-1 mission. Aircrews operating KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft are essential to RF-A exercises that provide commanders training for full spectrum engagements, ranging from individual skills to complex, large-scale joint engagements in the realistic threat environment inside more than 67,000 square miles of airspace within the Joint Pacific Alaska Range Complex.
