Not Your Grandma's Air Force
















These Air Force troopers did what their Grandmothers couldn't do!

The 376th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron, flew an ALL FEMALE KC-135 Stratotanker air refueling mission over Afghanistan. Early on Jan. 31,2005 a KC-135 Stratotanker took off from Ganci Air Base, Kyrgyzstan, carrying more than 180,000 pounds of fuel and an all-female crew - both pilots, a navigator and a boom operator. The event marked the first all-female crew to fly an air refueling mission into Afghanistan. Capt. Heather, and the rest of the crew are assigned to the 99th Air Refueling Squadron at Robins Air Force Base, Ga. (Hugh P. Young, Contracting Officer, KC-10/KDC-10, Tinker AFB, OK)

Thanks for this story to Nancy (NanaBananas) by way of TexasJudy.
