A KC-135 Stratotanker from the 100th Air Refueling Wing refuels a 354th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron A-10 Thunderbolt II March 26 above Ramstein. The A-10s deployed as part of a theater security package in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve. The TSP deployments are possible with the strategic access provided by infrastructure, support and relationships with local communities at U.S. and host nation installations. Service members from Ramstein, Spangdahlem Air Base, and Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England, were all involved in the aerial refueling training. Aircrew from Mildenhall stayed multiple days at Ramstein to operate from the Air Force’s premier power projection platform, giving the A-10s deployed to Spangdahlem quick access to aerial refueling capabilities.
