USAF security forces learn how to refuel the F-15E while avionics specialists defend the base in new concept

The U.S. Air Force has successfully demonstrated a new Combat Support Wing concept during a recent deployment to Kinston Regional Jetport.

F-15Es from the 4th Fighter Wing were refueled and rearmed by three teams of airmen who are from different career fields in the service. Weapons loaders show that they could drive a refueling truck while security forces demonstrate they could refuel the aircraft. Avionics specialists were tasked with base security.
