This weekend’s home-game flyover will feature a KC-135R and a KC-46 based out of Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma, from the U.S. Air Force's 97th Air Mobility Wing, whose men and women train aircrew to operate these advanced tanker systems.
The KC-135R Stratotanker is an air refueling platform that has been extending American airpower for 60 years. The KC-46 Pegasus is the newest Air Force tanker.
The lineup of pilots and crew will not be finalized until Friday, but no Aggies are expected to take part in this flyover as of now.
