POL Airmen power the mission

U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Coleman Kepner, 20th Logistics Readiness Squadron fuels controller, logs R-11 refueling trucks which fuel F-16CM Fighting Falcons at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., Feb. 22, 2018. With an average fuel load of 1,100 to 1,400 gallons, the F-16s use between 20,000 to 30,000 gallons of fuel per day. On weeks when hot pits are run, the jets can use about 100,000 to 120,000 gallons a day. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Ashley Maldonado)
