Attempt #1 at Aerial Refuelling

It has been a long time since Aerial refueling was added to IF and in my opinion, it is one of the best features of IF. Here is my first attempt at aerial refueling. A huge thanks to all the pilots @USCG_Virtual for giving me this wonderful opportunity!

Location- Off the coast of California
Departure ICAO- KEDW
FL220
Aircraft- KC10 Tanker and F22 Raptor

Leaving the ramp at Edwards AFB as a KC10 tanker spools over runway 6R.

Aligning my raptor with the KC10 to commence refueling

Beatiful Scenery above California!

Getting closer!

Great pilot whom I met while flying!
