Tanker Lift Exercise at Selfridge

Two Airmen monitor an air pressure regulator as a crane prepares to lift the nose of a KC-135 Stratotanker during an exercise at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Mich., Aug. 13, 2011. The 191st Maintenance Squadron performed an exercise in which they simulated a KC-135 Stratotanker had damaged nose gear and a crane was needed to move the aircraft to a safe location for repair. At the tail of the aircraft a series of inflated air bladders were used to help support the aircraft during the operation. (USAF photo by TSgt. Dan Heaton)
