Refueling the F-35B Lightning II with VMGR-352

An AV-8B Harrier with Marine Attack Squadron 211, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, refuels during fixed-wing aerial refueling training over eastern California, Aug. 27. This training teaches pilots and air crew to refuel an aircraft without landing using a KC-130J Super Hercules, thus extending the operational capability of the aircraft during combat missions.
