A long way home

A long way home:
A long way home
An A-10 Thunderbolt II flies off the wing of a KC-135 Stratotanker during a coronet mission over Egypt, Oct. 12, 2012. The A-10 is from the Arkansas Air National Guard’s 188th Fighter Wing and the KC-135 is from 100th Air Refueling Wing at Royal Air Force Mildenhall, England. A coronet is when an aerial refueling tanker escorts fighters over long distances, regularly topping off their fuel tanks along the way. The 188th FW aircrew was returning home from a deployment to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Austin M. May)
