Tanker team: The crew of Python 62

Airmen assigned to the 22nd Air Refueling Wing prepare a KC-135 Stratotanker for flight July 30, 2018, at McConnell Air Force Base, Kansas. During a deployment to Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, four aircrew members worked as a team to safely land a KC-135 during an in-flight emergency. Fuel was dumped from the boom nozzle to bring the aircraft to a safe landing weight, while in flight with three engines. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Alan Ricker)
