My flight with the 77th Air Refueling Squadron "The Totin' Tigers"
Photographer: Mike Lynaugh - June 14, 2011

On June 14, 2011 I was invited to take part in an amazing opportunity to take photographs during a mid-air refueling mission.  I was invited to go flying on a KC-135R Stratotanker with the 77th Air Refueling Squadron "The Totin' Tigers" and we would meet up with some F-15E Strike Eagles from the 333rd Fighter Squadron. 

The 77th Air Refueling Squadron is part of the 916th Air Refueling Wing based out of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, North Carolina.  We had a scheduled rendezvous with F-15E Strike Eagles from the 333rd Fighter Squadron "Lancers" who are also based out of Seymour Johnson AFB as part of the 4th Fighter Wing.

I wanted to thank Major Shannon Mann, Jim Froneberger, the crew of our KC-135R tanker, and everyone involved in helping to make this flight a reality and for permitting me to be a part of this amazing event, it is something I will never forget.
