Check out this video from the Total Force Formation Flight. The 931st Air Refueling Wing and the 22nd Air Refueling Wing conducted their first Total Force formation flight with the KC-46A. Col. Mark Baran, 22 ARW vice commander, piloted another aircraft in the formation. The KC-46A will eventually replace the U.S. Air Force's aging fleet of KC-135 Stratotankers which have been the backbone of the refueling fleet for more than 50 years. The KC-46A will provide more refueling capability, an increased capacity for cargo, and modern aeromedical evacuation capabilities. The KC-46A is expected to provide aerial refueling to Air Force, joint and partner nation aircraft. McConnell will receive 18 tankers in the first round of deliveries and will end up with a fleet of 34. https://www.dvidshub.net/video/670717/kc-46a-pegasus-total-force-formation-flight
