Now we have our long awaited DC-10F, which can fill-up our auto-pilot fighters, I already saw the first post of a fuel-plane pilot, making himself available to cruise and fill up some fighter. Great!
But how do we find this flying fuel station station?
I am proposing that the DC-10F will have a clearly recognisable colour on the radar screen, to make it easier for him to be found.
Would be better if it was only for the KC-10 Extender. But the idea is definitely practical and convenient!
Got my vote :-) yeah sure why not that way I would know where I will have to align myself.
Would sure make things convenient
Just an idea what about a gas can … lol, I do know that it was or sometimes is labeled as Kc 10 which is helpful.
Not a bad idea. Maybe a different color or a logo. Such as the B747, A380, and A340 show up with four engines on the radar instead of two. Maybe have the extender have a different logo to.
Yes. Like a normal heavy logo, but with a line coming out of it (with a drop?).
Someone gave me an idea for a logo to clearly indicate a tanker aircraft: ⛽️
Not entirely sure how serious he was though 😉
Something along those lines…
Voted Yes. Very useful idea.
I think they should just seperate the KC- varitants from the DC. Which ever way they do it, they should implement something, DC-10F is a little confusing!
Maybe even an icon that shows a shape or a DC10?
Awesome idea! Maybe the aircraft should pulse a soft green on radar.
I saw an aircraft today who changed his callsign to TANKER.
There’s a start! :-)
Well I am assuming he was indeed our tanker aircraft; if not, some people could find it humour ;-)
