Fueling the mission
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – Nicole Lira, a fuels distribution system operator with Defense Logistics Agency, performs a flash test on a fuel sample taken from one of their trucks after refueling at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo., Sept. 19, 2016. Even with a primarily space-based mission, the operations tempo on Peterson’s flightline is high and keeps the fuels shop busy. (U.S. Air Force photo by Philip Carter)
