A fuels specialist assigned to the 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, stands by while a B-1B Lancer is being refueled at RAF Fairford, United Kingdom, Oct 11, 2021. Hot pit refueling is the refueling of an aircraft without turning off the engines. These refueling operations give aircrew the ability to conduct multiple mission sets before needing to turn the aircraft over to undergo routine maintenance.
