B-2s conduct hot-pit refueling at Wake Island
Crew chiefs and a fuel distribution operator deployed from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, conduct hot-pit refueling on a B-2 Spirit at Wake Island Airfield Sept. 14, 2018. Hot-pit refueling is a technique where an aircraft lands and is refueled without shutting down its engines. These missions showcase the U.S. forces’ ability to address a global security environment and demonstrates U.S. commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
