A KC-46 Pegasus assigned to the 931st Air Refueling Wing, McConnell Air Force Base, Kan., lines up to refuel an U.S. Navy Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornet, July 1, 2020 over South Dakota. This marks the first time the 931st ARW refueled the Blue Angels using a KC-46. The KC-46 represents the beginning of a new era in air-to-air refueling capability to support the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps. The modernized fly-by-wire boom provides a larger air-refueling envelope than the KC-46’s predecessor, the KC-135 Stratotanker. In addition to the boom, the aircraft is capable of refueling through drogue and wing aerial fueling pods, or WARPs, to provide simultaneous multi-point air refueling. (U.S. Air Force photo by Maj.
