Tanker gas keeps the mission going but guess who takes care of the tanker!

Crew chiefs from the 154th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron work alongside flight line specialists to make sure the HIANG’s KC-135 Stratotankers are ready for action at a moment’s notice. 

While topping off the fuel in a car is an easy process, it takes quite a bit of coordination to make sure the thousands of gallons of fuel are distributed correctly throughout the aircraft, keeping the jet balanced for the mission at hand.
