Staff Sgt. Seth Cook (left), 22nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron (AMXS) hydraulics craftsman, alongside Master Sgt. Martin McAllister, 22nd AMXS production superintendent, attempts to rotate a stuck recoil assembly on a KC-46A Pegasus April 17, 2022, at Morón Air Base, Spain. The assembly allows the boom to move and rotate during air refueling to provide flexibility that protects both aircraft from potential damage. The aircraft is one of four participating in the first KC-46 Employment Concept Exercise, part of Air Mobility Command’s strategy allowing the Pegasus to support real-world missions and assess its capabilities on the path to full-operational status.
