For aircraft buffs. Midflight refuelling
#1
Fascinating to see how it's done.

Subject: KC-10 Refueling Over Afghanistan

KC-10 refuels another and then an F-16 and A-10 Warthogs; pretty neat. Unlike the KC-135 tanker where the boom operator (boomer) lies on his stomach to view out a window to refuel other aircraft, the KC-10 boomer sits in a comfortable chair and looks out a picture window during refueling.

Turn on your speakers to catch the cockpit conversations.
