Air-to-air refuelling over Iceland

A Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, deployed from RAF Mildenhall refuels a Boeing F-15C Eagle, deployed from RAF Lakenheath, while flying an alert mission exercise with the 493rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron in Iceland earlier this month. The squadron, made up of both US Air Force and NATO personnel, is fulfilling an air policing mission that assists in assuring Iceland’s air sovereignty.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on
    Opera. Outstanding Blog!
