B-2 Spirit Bomber gas and go
Staff Sgt. Shaun Tant, 509th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuel distribution operator deployed from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, conducts a hot-pit refueling on a B-2 Spirit Bomber at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii Jan. 22, 2018. Hot-pit refueling is a method of refueling an aircraft without shutting down the engines. Three B-2 bombers and more than 200 Airmen deployed here in support of U.S. Strategic Command’s Bomber Task Force mission. Bomber aircraft regularly rotate through the Indo-Pacific region to integrate capabilities with key regional partners and maintain a high state of aircrew proficiency.
