A U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle aircraft assigned to the 48th Fighter Wing at Royal Air Force Lakenheath, England, receives fuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft assigned to the 100th Air Refueling Wing at RAF Mildenhall, England, over the North Sea, July 27, 2021. 

The KC-135 Stratotanker extends the range of fighter, bomber and transport aircraft. The theater security challenges we face today and tomorrow require that our bases are not only experts in their business of airpower, but that we are synchronized.
