|SAC Attack: Suck It Up!
The U.S. Air Force Strategic Air Command (SAC) pioneered the use of aerial refueling to enable its long- range bombers to hit targets anywhere in the world. The swept-wing Boeing B-47 Stratojet flew as a bomber for SAC from 1951 to 1965; it was converted for other missions after its life as a bomber ended. The Boeing KC-97 Stratofreighter, derived from Boeing's Model 377 Stratocruiser commercial airliner, was the first operational aircraft to use the flying boom for refueling.
