KC-135 Stratotanker

An Air Force KC-135 Stratotanker from the 340th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron refuels a Royal Air Force GR-4 Tornado over Iraq using the multi-point refueling system. With MPRS, Air Force tankers have the versatility to refuel Air Force, Navy and coalition aircraft all in the same mission. On Feb. 26, Air Force, Royal Air Force and French tankers flew 34 sorties and off-loaded almost 2.2 million pounds of fuel. (Royal Air Force photo)
