F-22 gets synthetic blend

A KC-135 from the 336 ARS at the base refuels an F-22 from Edwards AFB with a new synthetic fuel which will decrease the Air Force’s dependence on foreign oil. It was the first time the new synthetic fuel was used in an air refueling as well as the first time a KC-135 flew using it. The pilots from both aircraft reported that everything went smoothly.
