Sgt. Thomas E. Bahr, student and loadmaster with Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 252, watches from the rear ramp of a KC-130J Hercules plane as an MV-22 Osprey refuels midflight above the Barry M. Goldwater Range east of the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Ariz., Oct. 31, 2009, during the final exercise of the Weapons and Tactics Instructors course. During the exercise, Hercules planes and crew refueled other aircraft midflight, simulated supply air drops and transported personnel and equipment. Students of the biannual course, run by Yuma-based Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron 1, graduated Nov. 1 and will return to their units to serve as instructors on the latest aviation tactics. Bahr, 24, is a native of Rochester, Mich. The squadron is based in Cherry Point, N.C. (Photo by Gunnery Sgt. Bill Lisbon)
