03/11/2017: Forward air refueling point airmen with the 1st Special Operations Logistics Readiness Squadron conduct a FARP operation at Hurlburt Field, Fla., Feb. 26, 2017.
The FARP program is a Special Operations Command initiative that trains petroleum, oils and lubrication airmen to perform covert, nighttime refueling operations in deployed locations where fueling stations are not accessible or when air-to-air refueling is not possible.
FARPs provide the ability to ensure an aircraft’s global reach capabilities are met to accomplish the mission.
Three F-22 Raptors, assigned to the 95th Fighter squadron, Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., received fuel from an MC-130J Commando II tanker assigned to the 9th Special Operations Squadron, Cannon AFB, N.M.
