Airmen from the 509th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuel distribution operators from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri conduct a hot-pit refueling on a B-2 Spirit Bomber at Naval Air Station Keflavik, Iceland, August 28, 2019. Hot-pit refueling is a method of refueling an aircraft without shutting down the engines. This is the B-2s first time landing in Iceland. Forward locations like Iceland enhance the collective defense capabilities of both the U.S. and NATO allies.
