Photographer's Note

The KC-10 Extender is one of the few jet aircraft in the world configured to haul military cargo, conduct aerial refueling missions and transport personnel at the same time. While the KC-10ís primary mission is aerial refueling, it can accommodate 75 passengers and transport 170,000 pounds of cargo. Using either an advanced aerial refueling boom, or a hose and drogue centerline refueling system, the KC-10 can refuel a wide variety of U.S. and allied military aircraft within the same mission. The aircraft is equipped with lighting for night operations. (From
