127th Wing Photos

Global Reach, Global Power

A B-52 Stratofortress from the 5th Bomb Wing, Minot Air Force Base, N.D., moves into position to receive fuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker flown by the 127th Wing, Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Mich., Sept. 7, 2012. The ability conduct aerial refueling allows the U.S. Air Force to project air power to any location in the world. The Air Force is able to further extend U.S. air power by utilizing the Total Force concept, relying on elements of the active-duty Air Force, such as the B-52’s crew; the Air Force Reserve; and the Air National Guard, which was operating the KC-135 on this mission.
