EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018: Airshows - F-22 and Tankers

By Fred Harl
EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 was certainly the Year of the Tanker as advertised! The airshows featured flights by the standard tankers currently in U.S. military service - KC-135 Stratotanker, KC-10 Extender, and KC-130 Hercules - with an F-22 in refueling position below the KC-135 and KC-10. Here we feature the solo performance of the F-22 Raptor and the procession of tankers that includes the Raptor in formation. The tankers and F-22 will be included in our coverage of Boeing Plaza, coming soon.
