A KC-135 Stratotanker, from the Arizona Air National Guard’s 161st Air Refueling Wing, joined F-16 Fighting Falcons from Aviano Air Base, Italy, and the Hellenic air force to perform in-flight refueling operations during a flying training deployment, Jan. 20 to Feb. 3, 2017, at Souda Bay, Greece. In-flight refueling lengthens an aircraft’s flight time to expand mission capabilities. As NATO allies, the joint training ensures a stronger Europe for all.
