  1. 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.

  2. 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
