If you ever even so much as watched an aerial refueling mission on YouTube, You know that these procedures require intense precision and every last move has to be on target or things can go wrong and the mission might just fail or worse.

Now, when tons of moving parts are thrown into the mix, such a refueling mission requires even more precision or such a sequence could fail entirely or cause some big-time damage.

This time, we follow along as “U.S. Marine Corps MV-22B Ospreys conduct an aerial refuel with a KC-130J Hercules during Weapons and Tactics Instructor course (WTI) in Yuma, Arizona.”

Check out the video below to see how the spout is placed carefully in the correct location to make sure that this one goes off without a hitch.
