A KC-135 Stratotanker from Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma, refueled two F-16 Fighting Falcons enroute from Shaw AFB, South Carolina, Sept. 29, 2022. In addition to refueling, the KC-135 aircrew transported the Viper Demonstration Team and their equipment for the upcoming airshow at Altus AFB. One of the F-16s was the single-ship demonstration viper, while the other was a spare F-16 in the event the main F-16 was unable to fly.
