Reflecting Global Reach.

A U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle jet fighter is reflected in the visor of  Senior Airman Charlton Hampton during routine, but still risky mid-air refueling near Okinawa, Japan. As security threats and humanitarian crises continue to pop up around the world, mid-air refueling extends the range of Air Force aircraft and the  global reach needed to respond to far-flung crises. 

Hampton is a boom operator on a KC-135 Stratotanker assigned to the 909th Air Refueling Squadron.
