ALTUS, OK (KSWO)- Thirty Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) cadets from Burkburnett and Amarillo got the opportunity to participate in a flyover of Altus Air Force Base and an in-flight refuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker.
The flight path took them around the base then to the southern border of Texas and back.
These flights are held quarterly to increase community awareness of the mission at Altus AFB. The event also helps to increase interest in the Air Force for the JROTC/Civil Air Patrol students.
Participants not only get a rare opportunity to see an in-flight refuel between two aircraft but a chance to learn more about the different careers available in the Air Force.
