The KC-46A Pegasus will take off and land approximately 1,250 times a year during mobility training
at the 97th Air Mobility Wing. In turn, this creates strain and wear on the aircraft parts, something the
Altus maintenance team constantly keeps close eyes on. The 97th AMW Maintenance Group KC-46 ATeam
accomplished a milestone task for the KC-46 program Oct. 8, 2019, when removing a KC-46 landing
gear strut for the first time at Altus Air Force Base, Okla.
