PHOTO GALLERY: NH1 News rides along with NH Air National Guard for refueling mission
NH1 News' Keke Vencill and Freddy Wheeler took to the sky to see how military planes refuel in midair.
9/11 became a real game-changer for the New Hampshire Air National Guard and the Pease Air National Guard Base. Within hours of the attacks, a K-C 135 took to the air refueling fighters patrolling the Eastern Seaboard.
In the coming years, the unit plans to transition to a newer fueling plane, the KC-46 Pegasus, as they continue to help keep our military running one gas tank at a time.
Take a look at these shots!
