I know for a fact that there are some people out there who struggle with physically maneuvering their own cars throughout traffic so when you look at something like this, it becomes all that much more impressive as these guys really have their abilities finely tuned.
In this demonstration, we watch as USAF Airmen from the 340th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron take on a mission to deliver fuel from a KC-135 Stratotanker to United Arab Emirates F-16 Block 60 Desert Falcons by using intense precision in the sky.
In a refueling situation like this, anything could go wrong at any time, so focus and experience are a must if you’re looking to win this battle against momentum and turbulence to deliver that fuel exactly to where it needs to go. If it doesn’t get there, major setbacks surely lie ahead.
Check out the video below that shows the fuel delivery in action as it gives you a first person view to glare right down the fuel spout to get a high-intensity look at the mission as it comes to fruition. It looks like this time, this mission could be called a success!
