RAF MILDENHALL NEWS

100th ARW conducts first USAFE KC-135 hot-pit refuel Airmen from Royal Air Force Mildenhall completed the first-ever hot-pit refuel of a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft in all of U.S. Air Forces in Europe command Jan. 8, 2021 WORDS: Karen Abeyasekere // PHOTO: Tech.

ot-pit refueling” is another name for an enginerunning refuel while the aircraft is grounded. This type of refueling is already performed on airframes such as the CV-22 Osprey, but until September 2020 had never been recorded on checklists or technical orders as having been performed on a KC-135. “Hot-pit refueling is a capability we are building to increase our survivability on the ground and increase the amount of gas in the

air,” said Chief Master Sgt. Nicholas Tonino, 100th Maintenance Group chief enlisted manager. “This capability will absolutely save time while securing persistent operations by significantly reducing generation times. Our Airmen keep improving our capabilities.” The running engine provides power to the jet and additionally acts as an air source, so when recovering or launching out of an austere environment, the aircrew have a

reliable air source to restart the remaining engines immediately after ground refuel is complete. This allows the aircraft to take off in a shorter time. The hot-pit refuel turned the refueling process from a four to six hour ground operation to roughly one hour. This innovation came directly from Capt. John Della Pia, a former 351st Air Refueling Squadron pilot and chief of squadron tactics, who just recently changed duty stations, leaving RAF Mildenhall before

It takes four hours for maintenance to perform their preflight inspections, ready the jet for refuel, then two hours for aircrew to run their checks and get ready for the next mission LEFT: KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft assigned to the 100th Air Refueling Wing taxis in to start the first-ever “hot-pit refuel”

getting to see his work come full circle. Della Pia’s research and findings provided the backbone not only in RAF Mildenhall’s first-ever hot-pit refuel, but also in establishing procedures for the very first KC-135 hot-pit refueling in history, which was accomplished at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, by the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing. It was during Della Pia’s time at the Tanker Weapons Instructor Course at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, that he came up with the idea of hot-pit refueling for KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft. “During the course, we’re required to write a graduatelevel paper, and my topic was tanker turn times and minimizing them,” he said. “We’re in the business of air refueling and we often

face a limiting factor of time constraints while on the ground. I decided to work out how we could tackle that tactical problem, which has operational, and even strategic affects, just providing more fuel while airborne and on any given day.” As part of his research, Della Pia investigated how the usual four to six hours spent on the ground could be minimized while maintaining reliable power and air from the engines. “It takes four hours for maintenance to perform their preflight inspections, ready the jet for refuel, then two hours

for aircrew to run their checks and get ready for the next mission,” he explained. “As part of my research, I wrote draft procedures not only for aircrew, but also maintenance and fuels Airmen. Della Pia added that refueling procedures on the ground are still the same, whether using pipes via a hydrant, or a fuel truck, but now the number one aircraft engine will be running during the process. “This will minimize the amount of maintenance and time-consuming inspections. Previously there were no precedents for this procedure →

100th ARW fuels Black Sea mission

ABOVE: U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Thomas Straub, 100th Logistics Readiness Squadron NCO in charge of fixed facilities, refuels a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft.

This will minimize the amount of maintenance and time-consuming inspections. Previously there were no precedents for this procedure with the KC-135 with the KC-135.” he remarked. Della Pia’s leadership understands how vital the hot-pit refueling is to both RAF Mildenhall and the U.S. Air Force, as a force multiplier which reduces aircraft turn time by 83 percent. “Without fuel, our capability to sustain global power, vigilance and reach is greatly reduced. As Gen. Charles Brown, Chief of Staff of the Air Force, stated, ‘We have to accelerate change, or lose,’ and hot-pit refueling is an innovative step to help ensure we maintain a competitive advantage,” said Col. Van Thai, 100th Operations Group commander.

U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft assigned to the 555th Fighter Squadron, Aviano Air Base, Italy, were refueled by a KC-135 Stratotanker aircraft assigned to the 100th Air Refueling Wing, Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England, during a mission over the Black Sea, Jan. 14, 2021. U.S. military operations over the Black Sea enhance regional stability, combined readiness and capability with NATO allies and partners.and on the DoD COVID Task Force’s assessment of unique DoD mission requirements.

DOD begins COVID-19 vaccination distribution The first members from the 100th Air Refueling Wing received COVID-19 vaccinations Jan. 5. These inoculations coincide with the Department of Defense’s COVID-19 vaccination distribution plan, aimed at protecting the health of military and civilian employees, families and communities. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized the use of a COVID-19 vaccine after rigorous testing and trials. Read more at www.mildenhall.af.mil

Create some tasty treats with 100 FSS by Rae Lovel

WITH “DISTANCE” IN THE FOREGROUND OF OUR SOCIAL LIVES THESE DAYS, 100 FSS is bringing people together with good food and good times. Members from across Team Mildenhall are bringing us into their homes and kitchens to share their skills and some of their favorite recipes. This series came to life after seeing how well cooking videos were received during our annual Mil-D-Con in October 2020. While 2021 began with Lockdown 3.0, we have been searching for socially distanced

fun and community. Food is one of the most universal features in the lives of our airmen and their families. Our recipes range from nostalgic American flavors to classic British tastes. They may be a quick but delicious bite, or may be a bit more time intensive. Either way, get cooking with us for the perfect way to spend a weekend in. Every Wednesday we will be bringing you “What’s Cooking Wednesday” videos from across 100 FSS. Keep an eye on our Facebook page (@100FSS) to join in!
