McConnell refuels the Thunderbirds over New Mexico skies

An F-16 Fighting Falcon Thunderbird flies through New Mexico skies after being refueled by a KC-135 Stratotanker Oct. 15, 2020. The traditional multirole fighter aircraft has a limited range due to the smaller airframe and requires aerial refueling support to reach further distances. Capable of traveling speeds up to 1,500 miles per hour, they can burn up to 8,000 pounds of fuel at low altitudes. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Alexi Bosarge)
