Mid-Air refueling with KC-10

I took these screenshots today while flying an F-22 with a KC-10. I did mid-air refueling and it was a fantastic flight. Hope you enjoy my photos.

The flight was from about 2200 to 2300Z. The flight was from KEDW and I landed at some random airport in Nevada. I was flying on casual server because that is the best server to do the mid-air refueling.

I can tell it went well! So much so that you had the cargo doors open! πŸ˜ƒ

Haha @DeerCrusher I was actually the F-22 and when I came up to the KC-10 with the doors open I laughed. πŸ˜‚

Photo 4 and 7 would been the greatest but it’s interesting seeing the cargo doors open πŸ˜‚

Captain: all doors secure
F/O: cargo door won’t close
Captain: ah, we don’t need it

Captain: Were losing cargo
F/O: No big deal. Ah. It’s not ours

I took a good 1 hour to think about the fact that the captain will leave cargo door open πŸ˜‚

The aircraft was over maximum landing weight so they just dumped some cargo πŸ˜‚
