AL UDEID AIR BASE, Qatar --
A U.S. Air Force KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft crew assigned to the 350th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron, executed an in-flight refueling mission in the U.S. Air Forces Central theater of operations Feb. 2, 2021.
The mission included refueling aircraft like the F-15E Strike Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon to allow the aircraft more time in the air to provide the right support at the right time. This unique capability give USAFCENT the ability to fight to win today and postures us to prevail tomorrow.
The F-15 Eagle is an all-weather, extremely maneuverable, tactical fighter designed to permit the Air Force to gain and maintain air supremacy.
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations.
