I’ve never seen a refuel done with multiple aircraft before

    correct me if im wrong, but the Navy Uses a “basket” refueling system to refuel in mirair, allowing for multiple aorcraft at once. The Air Force prefers the “probe”, so its limited to one Aircraft at a time

    The only thing the AirForce probes is the Navy. Have a Hooah Army Day.

    Gooooo Army!!!

    Anyone know what fighters those are?

    I don’t think the image is real. Four aircraft being refuelled at the same time is a nightmare for all the pilots involved. One miscalculation and they’re all screwed.

    You might be right. We all know what happened to the xb-70 with the f-104. Right?

    Of course, if this IS Navy, then there is nothing to worry about, as all Navy pilots are as badass as the Blue Angels themselves.

    It very unlikely that multiple midair refueling are done today. Seems like they wanted to test a bad idea in that pic.

    Multiple midair refueling is apparently quite often even in these days from what i gather.
