A KC-135 Stratotanker from the 340th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron prepares to refuel to an F-15E Strike Eagle over the skies of Iraq. Air Force officials have announced Northrop Grumman as the winner of the KC-X competition for the development and procurement of up to 179 KC-45 tanker aircraft to eventually replace the Eisenhower-era KC-135s.
