Hydraulic Airmen maintain KC-46 boom

Staff Sgt. Jacob Buffum, 22nd Maintenance Squadron hydraulics craftsman, Staff Sgt. Hannah Petersen, 931st Maintenance Squadron hydraulic craftsman and Senior Airman Jesse Jones, 22nd MXS hydraulic journeyman, remove a KC-46A Pegasus surge boot from a telescoping tube March 13, 2021, at McConnell Air Force Base, Kansas. Surge boots are rubber-like sleeves that run the fuel tube’s length, used as a way to prevent damage during fuel surges when the boom disconnects from the aircraft after refueling.
