B-2s practice engine-running crew changes and hot pit refuels at RAF Fairford. Transcript: Two B-2s landed at Royal Air Force Fairford, England today during their round-trip flights from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri. This layover provided flight and ground crews a chance to hone key capabilities. They conducted engine-running crew changes, a technique that allows the B-2 to continue operating with a fresh crew. The maintenance and fuels personnel performed a hot pit refuel while the aircraft engines were still running, further enhancing the B-2s capabilities, before departing back to Whiteman. Reporting from RAF Fairford, I'm A1C Lauren O'Connor.
