U.S Air Force Airman 1st Class Thom Saintelus, a fuels distribution operator from the 18th Logistics Readiness Squadron Fuels Management Flight, operates an R-11 fuel truck during joint training at Kadena Air Base, Japan, March 11, 2021. The fuel truck, which can hold up to 6,000 gallons of fuel, was used to fill two fuel bladders. This joint operation allows U.S. Marines to test their capability to fuel an aircraft rapidly, and for the U.S. Air Force to test their capability to support the Marine’s mission by providing fuel.
