Featured Aircraft

KC-46 Pegasus

The KC-46A Pegasus is a widebody, multirole tanker that can refuel all U.S., allied and coalition military aircraft compatible with international aerial refueling procedures. Boeing designed the KC-46 to carry passengers, cargo and patients. The aircraft can detect, avoid, defeat and survive threats using multiple layers of protection, which will enable it to operate safely in medium-threat environments.

This is the first time the Air Force Marathon has showcased a refueling aircraft.  The Pegasus will be featured on the event’s race shirts, medals and other marketing materials.
