Whiteman AFB 442nd Fighter Wing

Senior Airman James White, 509th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels operator, observes a hot pit refuel for a 442nd A-10 Thunderbolt II, Dec. 8. Hot pit refueling is a procedure usually performed in a combat situation to rapidly refuel aircraft while their engines are running resulting in a speedy refuel to thrust pilots right back into the fight. The 442nd Air Reserve technicians practice this procedure to keep their skills sharp. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Kenny Holston)(Released)
