Anytime, anywhere: KC-10s display global reach in the Pacific

A KC-10 Extender from Travis Air Force Base, California, sits on the runway after landing at Royal Australian Air Force Base Richmond in Brisbane, Australia July 14, 2017. KC-10s from Travis AFB and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, supported Exercise Talisman Saber 2017 by executing Exercise Ultimate Reach, a strategic refueling and airdrop mission in which three KC-10s refueled five C-17 Globemaster IIIs carrying U.S. Army, Australian and Canadian paratroopers prior to an airdrop. TS17 is a biennial exercise in Australia that focuses on bilateral military training between U.S. Pacific Command forces and the Australian Defence Force to improve U.S.-Australia combat readiness, increase interoperability, maximize combined training opportunities and conduct maritime prepositioning and logistics operations in the Pacific.
