A KC-10A Extender from McGuire Air Force Base, NJ, prepares to refuel a B-2 Spirit bomber during a training exercise on March 23, 2001. Although the KC-10’s primary mission is aerial refueling, it can combine the tasks of tanker and cargo aircraft by refueling fighters while carrying the fighters’ support people and equipment during overseas deployments.
