The 117th Air Refueling Wing Remembers Fallen Airmen

Students and directors from the University of Alabama-Birmingham paint nose art on a KC-135R aircraft. The design commemorates the 117th Air Refueling Wing's participation in the 1961 Bay of Pigs operation. Tech. Sgt. Aaron Sharit, a crew chief from the 117th Maintenance Group, created the design and was inspired by a combination of logos and graphics that were used on some of the aircraft during the invasion.
