A couple weeks ago i had the amazing opportunity to fly in a tanker and watch some of the f-16 refuel mid-flight! Although my husband isn’t a pilot, it was fun to see the wives of the pilots get to talk to their husbands over the radio! I know that is something that they won’t forget! Here are some photos from inside the plane (We are not allowed to take the photos on the flight line, but nothing in the kc-135 is classified.)
This is the boom where the jets meet up to get more fuel.
The crew was over visiting from Tennessee Air National Guard! Thanks guys for getting our guys back to Misawa!
These guys really were a blast to hang with for a few hours!
And now to the awesome Jet photos! Just another day in the office for these guys!
These pilots have a fun job but it does take hours outside of the air craft in mission planning, briefing, debriefing and reports! The pilots and their families do a lot to support the mission here in Misawa, Japan
