Something is very wrong with the link you posted.
I think you may mean this story:
Scott, I couldn’t get the link to work.
fixed the link and the URL is here:
I believe this was done several years ago with a 3 woman KC-135R (PACER CRAIG airplane, no Navigator) crew flying a combat over Iraq. So this would be the second time an all woman crew manned…….errr, I mean womaned a combat refueling mission.
The four crew members were aircraft commander [pilot], co-pilot, flight engineer, and boom operator. No navigator was listed – the KC-10 has inertial navigation, probably supplemented with GPS and other USAF-unique systems
You go girls !!!
