ENLISTED

IN-FLIGHT REFUELING SPECIALIST

FUELING OUR LONGER MISSIONS

1A0X1

Tactical locations are often long distances from supporting airfields, which means aircraft may require refueling midflight. Operating a specialized boom from the back of a KC-135, In-flight Refueling Specialists pump thousands of gallons of jet fuel into aircraft in need of fuel. These highly trained experts must have a steady hand and nerves in order to complete this remarkable and crucial task so we can continue to successfully complete all of our missions.
