Tech. Sgt. Steve Hood, 756th Air Refueling Squadron boom operator, watches as a Naval Air Systems Command P-8A Poseidon comes in on approach for an inflight refueling over the Atlantic Ocean April 13, 2017. This was the first inflight refueling of the P-8A after a year of planning with NAVAIR. The P-8A is only the second-ever Navy aircraft to be fitted with a receiver for aerial refueling; the first being the E-6B Mercury nearly 30 years ago. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Kat Justen)
