PEASE AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, N.H. - An F-22 Raptor waits for gas just off the wingtip of a KC-46A Pegasus aerial refueler from the 157th Air Refueling Wing, Nov. 16, 2022. The KC-46A was performing a 36-hour endurance mission, flying non-stop from New Hampshire, across North America and the Pacific Ocean, around Guam, and back home again. The proof-of-concept operation showcased the ability of the Air Force’s newest tanker to project the force in the modern battle space. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Senior Master Sgt.
