Pease KC-46 performs first transoceanic coronet

A New Hampshire Air National Guard KC-46A Pegasus refuels five Marine Corp’s F/A-18D Hornets with the Marine All-Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 242, as the fighters returned home to Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Ariz. from MCAS Iwakuni, Japan on Sept. 10, 2020, over the Pacific Ocean. This marks the first official transoceanic coronet mission ever accomplished with a Pegaus refueler, which began Sept. 9 and involved 16 aerial refuelings of the fighters. (courtesy photo)
