U.S. Airmen assigned to the 909th Aircraft Maintenance Unit and 18th Logistics Readiness Squadron oversee a KC-135 hot-pit operation at Kadena Air Base, Japan, June 28, 2022. Hot-pit refueling allows the aircraft to keep its engines running while receiving fuel, which minimizes ground time and ensures the mission will continue with minimal delay.
