The 305th Air Mobility Wing, the "Can Do" Airmen from McGuire Air Force Base, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Burlington County will be doing a special flyover of coastal South Jersey on Tuesday to celebrate 100 years of air refueling.

Air refueling, the process of fueling up one aircraft from another in mid-air was a game-changer for the U.S. Air Force in 1923.

Join us on June 27th as we commemorate a century of AR, a game-changing capability that has revolutionized global reach and power projection. From extending our operational range to building international partnerships, air refueling has shaped the course of Air Mobility Command.
The 305th Air Mobility Wing and Air Mobility Command partners will be flying in various aircraft formations"... over New Jersey.
You will be able to see aircraft from the 305th Air Mobility Wing and Air Mobility Command partners flying over Long Beach Island at about 1:10 pm today, Atlantic City at 1:17 pm, and Cape May at 1:25 pm, according to the 305th Facebook page.
The aircraft involved in the flyover are military aerial refueling and transport aircraft: the C-17 Globemaster, the KC-46 Pegasus and the KC-135 Strototanker.
