The 100th Air Refueling Wing is scheduled to unveil the historical "Skipper III" nose art on a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft during a dedication ceremony at RAF Mildenhall, May 7, 2021.

The 100th ARW is the only active duty U.S. Air Force unit authorized to display the World War II tail flash of its legacy unit, the 100th Bomb Group.

The legendary “Bloody Hundredth” 100th Bomb Group sealed its fate in military history through the
service and sacrifice of those assigned to the unit during World War II.

With the addition of "Skipper III" nose art, all 15 of the 100th ARW KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft will
display an updated version of the iconic World War II nose art that has come to symbolize the
"Golden Age" of aviation nose art.
