We’ve got ‘heavies’ in town, and Airmen from the 297th Air Traffic Control Squadron are keeping the flow of traffic steady as can be.KC-135 Stratotanker’s, crewed by Airmen from New Jersey, Washington, and Maryland, are supporting Sentry Aloha fighter operations out of Kalaeloa Airport.

During each sortie, these tankers rendezvous with fighter aircraft to provide in-air refueling to sustain training operations. The events of Sentry Aloha are tailored to ensure that warfighters in the air and ground are immersed in realistic combat scenarios and prepared to integrate with TFI partners at a moment’s notice.
