  • In more recent years, 58-0098 continued to serve in various theaters of operation, including the Middle East, supporting operations such as Desert Storm and the Global War on Terror. Its ability to provide rapid and extended aerial refueling capabilities to fighter and bomber aircraft made it an indispensable asset.
