GAF RAAF AAR | Ash Rand's Photo Compilation V3


To my 3rd Photo compilation, this time we have a look at a GAF RAAF Air to Air Refilling sortie. It started with us departing RAAF Base Richmond (YSRI), flying over Sydney Airport (YSSY) then turning out over the ocean to refuel then finally returning back to base.

The Pilots

KC-10 Pilot: Pilot Officer @Pilotcorn09

C-17/A Pilot: Group Captain @Ash_Rand

Now for the good bit, the photos!
