Here’s Why the Air Force Will Flyover South Jersey Today
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.
