The United States Military is the largest and most advanced military on the planet, thanks in large part to our superior airpower.

From massive troop and equipment transport planes to the nimble, heavily-armed A10 Warthog, the Armed Forces own the skies!

In this video, Airmen from the 340th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron deliver fuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker to an A10 in complete darkness. Thanks to night vision, you can get a good look at the precision flying required to link up with the nozzle thousands of feet in the air and traveling several hundred miles per hour!

That’s a whole lot of ‘Merica right there, keeping the skies safe for us!
