Honoring all Gold Star Spouses today. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. #GoldStarSpousesDay
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of U.S. Army Spc. Joseph P. Collette, who was killed in Afghanistan recently. Airmen of the 121st Air Refueling Wing honored him by standing in formation during his dignified transfer today at Rickenbacker International Airport.
"It's nice to show that we're not just support mission, we are the mission...we may be female and male on the ground, but in the air we're all just aviators." - Lt. Col. Barb Bartch For #WomensHistoryMonth, we are featuring Lt. Col. Barb Bartch, the 121st Air Refueling Wing's first female pilot. She became a pilot for the Air National Guard in 1998 and is now the Chief of Safety for the wing. The mission shown in this video was flown on #InternationalWomansDay . The nose art on the KC-135 Stratotanker piloted by Bartch depicts Fifinella, the mascot of the historic Women Airforce Service Pilots. (U.S. Air National Guard video by Ralph Branson)
What better way to spend #InternationalWomensDay than flying with Lt. Col. Barb Bartch, 121st Air Refueling Wing pilot, on a mission that refueled an F-16 Fighting Falcon flown by Lt. Col Alexis Scott, a pilot with the 177th Fighter Wing. The nose art on the KC-135 Stratotanker piloted by Bartch depicts Fifinella, the mascot of the historic Women Airforce Service Pilots.

Check out our Airman spotlight on Staff Sgt. James Noble from the 121st Civil Engineering Squadron! James has accomplished so much during his first enlistment. He has been deployed to Iraq, Cuba, Israel, and almost every state in the Continental U.S. And James is just getting started. He's working toward becoming an Air Force recruiter so he can pay-it-forward for all of the incredible opportunites that he's been given since joining the Ohio Air National Guard.
Air refueling doesn't happen without the hard work of our dedicated crew chiefs. Check out these action shots of Tech. Sgt. Brennen Johnson of the 121st Maintenance Group. (U.S. Air National Guard photos by Senior Master Sgt. Ralph Branson)
The 121st Air Refueling Wing recently held a groundbreaking ceremony at Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base. Hangar 885 will receive a $13 million interior renovation which is scheduled for completion in May 2020. This historic building, originally intended for use by the Strategic Air Command to house medium-range bombers, was constructed in 1954 at a cost of $2 million. Upon completion, the renovated hangar will house the entire 121st Maintenance Group.
Happy President's Day!
