Tankers Could Bear Some Airlift Burden: U.S. Air Force Chief
By NICOLE GAUDIANO
Tankers could be doing more airlift missions to meet the airlift requirement, said U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. John Jumper.
In an Aug. 30 meeting with reporters, Jumper said the option could work well with a mix of large and small tankers, “more in favor of the large one.”
“We might be able to adjust the number of C-17s and C-5s in the fleet if we have a tanker force that’s able to absorb the surge in air mobility,” he said.
