Boy...that brings back memories! I've been on both ends...the KC-135 side and the receiver end (RC-135). Great video. Thanks for sharing!

Sick!

 

I was wondering if the US' new P-8's would have this capability. It makes sense the wedgetails would.

 

I bet those pilots would have appreciated those eyebrow windows if they were still around!

I wonder if that's a fuel dump at 1:51. And the engine pods look a little pudgy.

 

Cool vid.

Can someone answer me a question real quick; why do they refuel while banking to the left? Does that not just make it harder?

Hmmmm, interesting.

 

I would have thought this had more to do with the anatomy of (male) pilots.

 

You always learn something in these forums.
