PERU, Ind (WLFI) — One of the busiest air refueling reorganizations is helping out its team while 25,000 feet in the air.

The 434th Air Refueling Wings helped supply more than 35,000 pounds of fuel to the United States Air Force Thunderbirds.

Our crew went to Grissom Air Reserve Base to capture the feat and watch seven Thunderbirds refuel at more than 300 miles per hour.

The story on how and why it happens airs Monday at 5 and 6 p.m.
