'Nobody Kicks Ass Without Tanker Gas'

Nobody Kicks Ass Without Tanker Gas (NKAWTG) is an acronym used within the US Air Force tanker community, and is rumoured to have been started by the 305th Air Refueling Wing at Grissom AFB, Indiana, way back in 1984.
Simply put, without the support of in-flight refuelling aircraft, pretty much nothing would get done! Strike missions, long-range transport, special forces, and QRA - all regularly require air-to-air refuelling to complete the mission. And so, whilst the thought of being an aerial gas station driver may not appear that glamorous to most pilots, it’s a vital piece in the jigsaw of today’s modern air arm.

air-to-air images

Over the years, Jetwash Aviation Photos has flown and continues to fly numerous air-to-air sorties with various air arms around the world. We'd like to share some of those images with you on the site. Helicopters, fighter jets, bombers and much more can be seen where they belong and where they look 'right' - in the air!

hellenic air force reports

Some of our most popular reports are those of the Hellenic Air Force. The Greek's fly a varied mix of modern and 'classic' types in their inventory, many of which rarely, if ever venture outside of their homeland. Jetwash Aviation Photos has worked with the HAF for many years, reporting from most of their bases, including the annual Iniochos exercise.
