B-2s conduct hot-pit refueling at Wake Island
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Hayden Thayer, crew chief deployed from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, marshals a B-2 Spirit at Wake Island Airfield Sept. 14, 2018. The B-2 conducted hot-pit refueling, a technique in which aircraft land and refuel without shutting down their 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.
