McConnell A.F.B. providing support for Thunderbirds at Super Bowl 51

Wichita's McConnell Air Force Base is doing its part to support Super Bowl 51.

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will perform a flyover at the big game, and crews from McConnell will help them get there.

A KC-135 Stratotanker from McConnell will provide aerial refueling to the Thunderbirds as they travel to their destination. They will also refuel an MC-130.

The Air Force Base hosted a refueling demonstration for the media on Thursday.
