A U.S. Air Force KC-135 Stratotanker assigned to the 92nd Air Refueling Wing flies in formation with two F-15C Eagles from the 142nd Fighter Wing over Mount Rainier during Operational Centennial Contact June 27, 2023. Operation Centennial Contact, a movement which included flights over Yellowstone National Park, Mount Rushmore and Glacier National Park, was part of Air Mobility Command’s celebration of 100 years air refueling operations and demonstrated the 92nd Air Refueling Wing’s global reach capabilities. Since its inception in 1923, air refueling has become a crucial component of military and civilian aviation operations around the world by extending the range and endurance of aircraft and enabling them to complete missions that would otherwise be impossible or require multiple stops. As a result, this capability is essential for strategic and tactical operations, as well as humanitarian relief efforts in support of AMC, U.S. Transportation Command and Department of Defense priorities.
