Miss USA Tara Connor Takes A KC-10 Hop At McGuire AFB
McGuire Air Force Base, N.J. - Tara Connor, the 2006 Miss USA, left the stage and expensive clothes behind for a different kind of runway and high altitude fashion during a hop with the 305th Air Mobility Wing's 2nd Air Refueling Squadron aboard a KC-10 Extender. The visit was organized by the USO.
During her orientation flight, Miss USA wore a flight suit with a personalized name tag, sat in the flight deck for take-off and landing, and was able to see the plane give and receive fuel.
"This is the first time I've been in a plane like this. It's an awesome opportunity, and the people here are amazing," said Ms. Conner.
