    A hand grips the lever of a R-11 refueling truck hose during a hot pit refuel at Yokota Air Base, Japan, June 10, 2022. Hot pit refueling uses a single-point refuel pump, allowing an aircraft to be refueled immediately after landing, with the engine running. This procedure is more frequently used with fighter jets, but is newer to the KC-46A Pegasus, making it essential to practice and increase capabilities available to the Pacific Air Forces.
