Flying KC-97G aircraft, this unit lived up to its motto "We Change The Range." The 98th flew 10,000 refueling missions and delivered over 325 million pounds of jet fuel in-flight. The squadron never lost a man or an accident, never recorded an injury from an accident nor a disabling injury during maintenance work. Its safety record and accomplishments are a tribute to the professionalism of its maintenance personnel and flight crews.
