Making the approach

An F-16 Fighting Falcon from 148th Fighter Wing based out of Duluth, Minn., lines up his approach to the boom of a KC-135R Stratotanker from the 128th Air Refueling Wing from Milwaukee in preparation for a midair refueling, Aug. 15, 2012. The refueling mission was part of a employer incentive flight where Air National Guardsmen nominate their civilian employer(s) to witness an air refueling mission as a measure of thanks for the support their employers give to the air national guard and the guardsmen.
