There are 396 KC-135 Stratotankers managed by the Air Mobility Command. The KC-135 community supports worldwide missions, enabling global reach across a full spectrum of mission activity.

A number of KC-135s possess specialized capabilities, and these Airmen and aircraft serve as a part in the 22nd Operations Group special operations air refueling division. The McConnell KC-135-focused SOAR unit is dedicated to enabling joint service special operations effects around the globe.

The annual Open House in May or June features tours of places normally off-limits and the precision flying teams of the Blue Angels or the Thunderbirds.
