Scott performs hot pit refueling
U.S. Navy Lt. Brad Pennington, naval flight officer, listens to a briefing prior to a U.S. Navy E-2D Hawkeye hot pit refueling, Jan. 24, 2018, at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. Because it was Scott’s first hot pit refueling on a fixed-wing aircraft, the crew and members of the 375th Operations Support Squadron held a classroom briefing and a practice run beforehand to help mitigate risks and review all proper procedures.
